Ahead of tonight’s friendly game against the Teranga Lions of Senegal in London, former international and Super Eagles’ Team Coordinator, Mr. Patrick Pascal (MON), has cautioned the Super Eagles not to underrate Senegal if they must get something out of the friendly match in London.
The former Royal Antwerp of Belgium centre forward maintained that the Super Eagles must be wary of the threat of the Senegalese players led by Liverpool’s Sadio Mane.
Pascal noted further that today’s friendly game is very important to Nigeria and Nigerians, and at such, the players must come out and battle for all three points.
“Senegal are a very good side; we are aware of that and our players should not underrate them.”
“They have very good players who can do a lot of damage and we saw the way they performed at the last AFCON in Gabon.”
“This game is a very important one and our players must not sit back against them. They must come out and play this game because it is important to every Nigerian,” said Pascal.
