Ahead of the return leg of their CHAN qualifiers game against Ghana, head coach of the Nigerian team Salisu Yusuf has cried out over the poor treatment of the team since they resumed camping for the qualifiers.
Nigeria lost the first leg away to Ghana 0-2 and will need to score at least three goals to overturn the deficit and qualify. Two goals will see the game dragged into penalties to determine a winner.
With the return leg set to be .ed this weekend in Abuja, Yusuf decried the lack of support given to his team but insist they will do their best to ensure they qualify ahead of Ghana.
“Since we resumed camping everyone can see how the environment looks like for us. We don’t get any moral support, we were all alone, we travel alone, and we came back alone”, he said in Abuja after yesterday’s training.
“Everything is about care of people, if they care for the team I think it will go a long way. I really appreciate the efforts of the .ers and we will continue to do our best and we hope that at the end of it all we will qualify,” he concluded.
