Guinea-Bissau Won’t Be Easy Game – Osimhen

• Amaechi Otti Carpets Peseiro

After their hard-earned victory over the host, Elephants of Cote d’Ivoire, at the ongoing AFCON, Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen, says they are expecting a tough game from the Djurtus of Guinea Bissau in their last group game on Monday.The Super Eagles relaunched themselves in the African Cup of Nations with the narrow win, with the Napoli forward handing Nigeria the opportunity to earn the full point after he was hacked down in the box.According to BSNSports.com.ng, Osimhen has admitted how strong the Guineans were, and recognised how they approached matches with determination.“We aim for a strong performance against Guinea-Bissau. They will undoubtedly approach the game with determination, and we won’t underestimate any team, considering what they’ve done to qualify.“We met them in the qualifiers and know how strong they are. They defeated us at home, while we also beat them away.“So, we are expecting a tough game against them. We will do our best to win,” Osimhen stated.Meanwhile, a former Nigeria defender, Amaechi Otti, has said that the Super Eagles rose to glory against the Elephants on the crest of luck, adding that it is not impossible for the team to reach the tournament’s podium on the wings of luck.Otti, who played domestic football with Rangers FC before moving to Europe, told Exclusivenews.com.ng that the Super Eagles still have a lot to do to achieve their dream of winning the AFCON title.“Looking at the matches statistics, one can say it was a one- way traffic for the hosts, Elephants of Cote d’Ivoire,” Otti said. “The home team enjoyed about 65 per cent ball possession. They also had over 450 completed passes against Super Eagles 35 per cent possession and over 240 completed passes.“Therefore, on the balance of play, the Elephants could understandably be said to be better and perhaps deserves to win. But then, you don’t always need the best of play or performance to win on a big stage such as this.“I think today, the Super Eagles rose on the wings of luck to win and I hope such divine favour drives them through to glory in the entire tournament”.Otti also spoke on the performance of Jose Peseiro with the Super Eagles so far saying that those who engaged him should “look themselves in the face and ask fundamental questions that border on morality, fairness and sincerity.“First and foremost, was he accepted as the bestman for the job before his appointment’? Has he worked and proved he is the best since his employment?“We’ve seen what he has brought to the table since his arrival, but his employers have displayed absolute lack of political will, courage and patriotic zeal to do the needful,” he stated.
