Nigeria vs Sudan 2022 Preview
Nigeria and Sudan will face off for a 15th occasion as the Super Eagles have a significant advantage over Saturday’s rivals. Since their first match back in 1963, West Africans won on eight occasions, drew four times and lost just twice to the Sudanese.
Nigeria’s coach Augustine Eguavoen says his team will go into their next match against Sudan with the same approach after winning their opening game 1-0 against Egypt.
After the first round of play, many pundits and fans were so impressed with the Super Eagles that many said they were the best team of that stage of the competition.
Now their big obstacle will be to keep things in perspective and not get carried away by the enthusiasm generated by Egypt win.
“Sudan is not a pushover, and more so, they are one point, we are three points, we want to consolidate on that and we will be pushing on harder to have a chance to qualify for the knockout phase,”Eguavoen emphasized in his press conference.”They have players in their attack who are quite fast, probably as fast as Mo Salah (Liverpool and Egypt striker), but tomorrow they are playing against Nigeria and we expect that they will raise their game as well, but we will respond well.”
For Nigeria, there will be a need to see more from Kelechi Iheanacho. The Leicester man was the star of the match against the Pharaohs of Egypt, revealed that the Super Eagles will not let their chances go to waste as against their opening match where they failed to convert a flurry of chances against the hapless Egyptians.
Sudan, who are coming off a draw against Guinea Bissau their opener, they come in searching for a success in their next match against Nigeria. This would be the first since AFCON qualifying back in 2015.
The Falcons of Jediane are anxious to be able to get their third win ever against the African powerhouse.
“Many people expect us to lose. But you know, in football can happen everything,” said Sudan winger Yasin Hamed. “For us, the most important thing is to go on the pitch to prove first of all, for us and after for everybody like we have … we are a team. We are like a family and we can do everything together.”
