He said: “We have seen some of their games. They played three games during the last international window. They played two games in Tunisia and one in Algeria,”
“Through the games, we have watched, we have noticed that they are a good side and that we cannot afford to toy with them. They have Oscar Dorley playing for Slavia Prague and a host of other stars playing in Europe,” the Super Eagles coach added.
