NFF President Amaju Pinnick has commended the Super Eagles for Saturday’s 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier victory against the Fennecs of Algeria at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, stating that the team will continue to take the race one step at a time.
Victor Moses and Mikel Obi were on target as the Super Eagles humbled their Algerian counterparts 3-1 in encounter, which took the Eagles to the top of Group B with six points.
“This victory is very, very sweet. But as I said after the match in Zambia, this is a marathon. We have now won two matches out of six, and as a result of the draw between Cameroon and Zambia, we are looking very good on top,” the NFF boss said.
“The best approach is to keep focus, to know that we are not there yet but that we surely will be there by putting more effort in each of our next four matches.”
The Super Eagles next play Cameroon at home on Aug. 28, and away within a week, next year, with the NFF boss insisting that the tie will be tough.
“Cameroon have drawn their first two matches of the series and will play us hard in both legs, but we have to play them even harder,” Pinnick said.
