Player selection not Ghana is our problem – Austin Eguavoen

Super Eagles technical adviser and interim coach Austin Eguavoen has explained his only major headache ahead of Nigeria double-header clash against Ghana in March.

The West African rivals go head-to-head over two legs with the aggregate winner securing a ticket to FIFA World Cup, Qatar 2022.

The first leg will be played at Cape Coast Stadium on Wednesday, 23rd March or Thursday, 24th March while the second leg at MKO Abiola National Stadium, Abuja on Sunday, 27th March.

And coach Eguavoen is adamant that Nigeria have too many talents to execute the job and selection would be his major problem.

β€œIt is always an honour to serve the country. I was impressed with the high level of discipline and commitment of the players at the AFCON in Cameroon, and I feel privileged to lead the group.

“We have two tough games against Ghana next month but I am not too worried because we have a squad that knows it is a mountain that we have to climb.

“We have a good headache to deal with – which is a surplus of good players. I want to thank the Government and the NFF for all the support during the AFCON; we will need even greater support for the World Cup play-off.”

Nigeria is blessed with so many attacking options with the likes of Victor Osimhen, Paul Onuachu, Samuel Chukwueze, Simon Moses, Ademola Lookman, Sadiq Umar.

Alex Iwobi, Chidera Ejuke, Kelechi Iheanacho and others.
