AFCON: Sudan maps out strategy to clip Eagles wings

The Sudanese captain, Yasine Ahmed has reiterated his side’s desire to stun the Super Eagles when they clash together today in the second Group D game in the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Speaking during a press conference, the skipper acknowledged the presence of top-class players in Eagles team but will go all out and compete against the three-time Africa champions.

“It’s a very important game for us. We want to take points. They have top class players. They play in England, Spain, Italy and France. We want to compete and have a good game. It’s 50-50.

“Many people expect us to lose. In football anything can happen. We want to go out there and compete. We want to make our fans happy and that’s the aim going into Saturday’s game. This tournament is very important for every player.

“It’s one of the best tournaments in the world. Nigeria is a very good team. We want to win. We won’t focus on one player. We will play as a team and family. We train hard, we want to prove that many things have changed. We have a young team. We try to pass and build something. Nothing will change against Nigeria. For us this game is very important,” he said.
