” We are not in the best shape for but we don’t complain there is team have solidarity perhaps even too much solidarity. But we will be ready; the fittest one will play tomorrow.

“We prepare to face them with humility because they were unbeaten in the qualifiers. It is difficult because all the big countries are here. but I believe the competition will be wonderful with passionate fans and nice pitches.

“Egypt are favourites. We don’t have stars like other teams; our team is the star and we want to play quality football in Nigerian tradition.”
