We will not fall your hand in Algeria - Super Eagle Tell Nigeria

Players and officials of the Super Eagles have
stated that they are fully ready for the antics of
the Desert Foxes of Algeria in today’s semifinal
game at the on-going Total Africa Cup of Nations
in Egypt.
Today’s semifinal cracker holding at the Cairo
International Stadium is tagged: ‘Final before the
final’ of the competition, and the Super Eagles
have said that they know the task ahead of them.
Speaking at a pre-match conference yesterday in
Cairo, Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo
said they wouldn’t fall to the football antics of the
Algerians, which they are known for.
“The Algerians are known for their football antics;
trying to provoke opponents to commit fouls. But
we will take care of it. Our coach always says no
foul, particularly around the 18-yard box. That
will be our weapon in the match against the
Algerians. We will beat them to their antics,” he
stated.
Omeruo, who scored Super Eagles’ lone goal in
the second Group B match against the Syli
Nationale of Guinea in Alexandria, however, stated
that today’s match would be tough.
“Any opponent at this stage of the competition is
a tough team. We watched the match between
Algeria and Cote d’Ivoire, and we saw how the
Algerians played. But the Super Eagles is equally
a tough team. We have players, who are capable
of handling any situation. I am sure we will beat
Algeria.”
Coach Gernot Rohr said he would parade the best
squad in today’s semifinal, saying: “We have
given some young players the opportunity to
prove themselves in this competition. This is the
semifinal and we have to parade our best. So far,
the players have given a good account of
themselves in this competition. They have given
good image of the country, fighting on. And we
will continue to fight on until we win the trophy.”
Despite eliminating some heavyweights in the
competition, including the defending champions,
Indomitable Lions of Cameroun and ‘stubborn’
Bafana Bafana of South Africa, Rohr says the
Eagles should not be tagged the favourite for the
trophy. “All the four teams in the semifinal are
favourites for the title. I can only say we are
second favourite.”
Meanwhile, an Algerian player, Sidi Abed has
declared that they would do everything to conquer
the Eagles in today’s semifinal, saying: “Nigeria
has good players, but we know where to go and
how to go about it tomorrow (today).”
