Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro has vowed that his team will defeat the desert foxes of Algeria in the second test game today in Oran.
The two teams will face each other today at the Miloud Hadefi Stadium, Oran. Kick-off is 8 pm Nigeria time.
Super Eagles haven’t recorded a win in their last three encounters against the North Africans.
Super Eagles played out a 2-2 draw with the home-based Algeria national team on Friday in Oran.
Although, coach peseiro has assured of victory in today’s encounter with the main Algeria side despite battling with injuries to some players.
“We are going to play against a good team, it won’t be easy but we have quality. We will fight hard to beat them,” he added.
Peseiro will miss the services of some of his key players in the game.
Assistant captain, William Troost-Ekong returned to England last Saturday after sustaining an injury in the test game against Algeria’s home-based team.
Midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi spent only two days in camp before returning to his club over a hamstring issue.
The likes of captain Ahmed Musa, Leon Balogun, Samuel Chukwueze and Emmanuel Dennis all pulled out of the game as a result of injury.
Peseiro insists their absence will not affect the super Eagles performance.
“We believe in the players that are here, we believe in their abilities. They know what to do and we believe in them.
“I have confidence in them that they will do well. We have enough quality in our team to cope with the absence of those who are not here,” he added.
