Eguavoen says Nigerians can trust that we won’t undervalue Guinea Bissau.

Nigerians may be certain that Eguavoen is on their side. It is Augustine Owen Eguavoen’s belief that the Super Eagles have no reason to look down on their opponents or to treat the game carelessly when they meet the Guinea Bissau Wild Dogs tomorrow at Stade Roumdé Adjia in Garoua, Guinea.In addition to wins against Egypt and Sudan, Nigeria has also benefitted from other results, such as Egypt’s victory over Guinea Bissau on Saturday, to advance to the round of 16 as group leaders.

Despite this, Eguavoen says that his team’s strategy to the 33rd Africa Cup of Nations would remain the same: one match at a time, win everything.”We must have a winning attitude while maintaining our composure. As I said to the players after the Egypt game, we have yet to win anything other than points in this season. Guinea Bissau needs three points to tie the game since they have just one so far.

If we allow ourselves to get complacent, the team’s mindset will suffer. “We’ll go for a total of three.”Guinea Bissau drew 0-0 with Sudan in their first encounter, missing a late penalty kick, and then fell to Mohamed Salah’s goal in their second match, a fight in which they gave all they had, despite the fact that they believed they should have been awarded an equalizer.

With a little luck, they could have been able to overcome Sudan while also tying Egypt. On Wednesday, that will be the opponent. Eguavoen assured them that they would never be labeled as weak. The only coach to have led Nigeria to victory in all three of their group matches since the country’s debut participation at the AFCON in 1963 is Eguavoen. A 2-1 victory against Senegal in the 2006 finals sent the Eagles to the Al Masry Stadium in Port Said, where they beat Ghana 1-0 and Zimbabwe 2-0.

A total of three tenure had seen the 1994 AFCON champion and two-time FIFA World Cup defender win 12 of his previous 14 matches, with just two losses coming against Cote d’Ivoire in the 2006 semi-finals and against Guinea in an AFCON qualifier in which the squad lost by an odd goal. After surveying his team at training on Sunday morning and fielding media questions, the former Nigerian defender smiled easily.

He was a player in the 1988 World Cup final against the Cameroonians in Morocco, which Nigeria lost by a solitary goal, and the 1992 bronze medal match against the Netherlands, which the Super Eagles won 2-1. That is still a long way off.” Guinea Bissau is the center of our attention. “One step at a time.”

According to the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Kenyan official Peter Waweru Kamaku will referee the match. The 39–year–old is a mathematician who also works as a university professor. His assistants include compatriot Gilbert Cheruiyot, Mozambican Arsenio Maringule, and Moroccan Redouane Jiyed, as well as a number of other nationals (fourth official).
