AFCON qualifiers: Alloy Agu attacks Libyan coach

Super Eagles goalkeeper trainer Alloy Agu

Super Eagles goalkeeper coach, Alloy Agu, has aimed a cheeky dig at Libya manager, Abdel Amrouche, ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.

Amrouche began the mind games in September after his team played a goalless draw against South Africa saying he will rather face Nigeria twice.

The ex-Mediterranean Knights star, who claimed Nigeria believe in black magic, said his team can easily handle  Gernot Rohr’s men.

However, Agu believes that football is played on the pitch and not in front of the microphones.

“In football you can say anything you want to psyche up your team but remember that football is played on the pitch for 90 minutes and I am sure that at the end of the game we will be the ones smiling,” the former international told FootballLive.

The goalkeeper trainer insists that the current shot-stoppers in th team are all in good form heading into the game.

The Super Eagles face Libya at the Godswill Akpabio international stadium in Uyo on October 12 before heading for the return leg in Tunisia three days later.
