Seven-time African champions Egypt are beatable because they are not as good as they were four years ago, according to former Nigeria coach Sunday Oliseh. Oliseh quit as Eagles coach on Thursday after claiming several contractual breaches by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
Nigeria will welcome the Pharaohs to Kaduna on March 25 in the first leg of an AFCON qualifying double header. Oliseh quit a month to this all-important, but he has restated his belief Nigeria could triumph to get their AFCON qualifying campaign back on track.
“Egypt are not as good as they were four years ago, we can beat them,” he maintained on a radio interview Saturday morning.
However, he reserved his comments on the coaches who have been appointed to replace him ahead of the matches next month.
“It doesn’t matter who is there, what matters is that Nigeria advance,” he said when asked about the Samson Siasia-led coaching crew named to lead the Eagles against Egypt.
