There are more battles ahead, stay focused, Sunday Dare warns Eagles

The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare has urged the Super Eagles to remain focused as there are many battles to be won to win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Cameroon.

 Dare who was present on Tuesday when the Super Eagles defeated Pharaohs commended the team for their winning start but urged them to maintain their momentum against other teams. 

“You can see how different the team looked and played today. There is a new spirit and a new attitude in the players and it showed with their total dominance of proceedings on Tuesday. 

“They brought the professionals that they are to the fore with a masterful display. They stepped up their game without any distractions. We saw the kind of football the Super Eagles are known for. I must thank the players, the coaching crew and the NFF for returning the Nigerian DNA to our football.

“Now we have to stay focused and take it one game at a time. We have just won a game, although a very important and morale boosting win but this is just the beginning. We must not get carried away. 

“There are more battles ahead. I believe we will not be complacent. I think we can get better and better with every game. So, this game against Egypt is done and dusted, we must face our next game with the same level of zeal and determination,” Dare added. 

Nigeria who currently top the group will play her second game of the tournament against Sudan on Saturday,  January 16, 2022 in Garoua.
