2019 AFCON: Nigerian Coach Reveals Dangerous Players That’d Hurt Eagles

Former Super Eagles coach Samson Siasia has identified Riyad Mahrez and Baghdad Bounedjah as Algerian players who could hurt the side on Sunday.

Nigeria and Algeria meet in a semi-final clash at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON ).

Speaking ahead of the clash, Siasia said: “We must be sincere to ourselves in analysing our chances in this clash. The Algerians are a really tough side to beat any day.


“They have the team. If you look at the materials which they have, strikers like Adams Ounas and Youcef Atal who both picked up an injury, Riyad Mahrez and Baghdad Bounedjah who missed the penalty against Cote d’ Ivoire.”

He added that “These are quality and dangerous players who can hurt any team any day.

“However, with the absence of the injured Ounas and Atal, I am hopeful that this could be an advantage for the Eagles who have a fully fit squad heading into this encounter.

“Players like Samuel Chukwueze, Ahmed Musa and Moses Simon could be key players in Coach Gernot Rohr’s side and a constant menace down the right and left flanks with their strong runs, which are capable of posing a threat to any opposition’s defence.”
