Interim Super Eagles coach Eguavoen reveals the strengths he sees in Guinea-Bissau team
Nigeria's caretaker boss Augustine Eguavoen has reiterated that he is not underestimating the Guinea-Bissau side in Wednesday evening's last group game at Roumdé Adjia Stadium, Garoua.
 
The Super Eagles are aiming to be the only team to finish the group stage with a hundred percent record - something that could not be achieved by other favourites for the title such as Cameroon, Senegal, Morocco, Ivory Coast and Tunisia.

Nigeria's squad depth will come under scrutiny with Eguavoen expected to give minutes to some fringe players in his squad.

The 1994 Africa Cup of Nations winner has highlighted the strengths of Guinea-Bissau and has worked on a formula to prevent the opponents from causing damage.

"We have seen them play, physical side, determined side. Ball possession sometimes they mix up the game, sometimes they want to possess sometimes they want to go direct, they are very, very quick," Eguavoen said to reporters at Tuesday's pre-match press conference.

"We are working on how to stop them and at the same time working on how to score goals."

Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah is the only player to have scored against Guinea-Bissau at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations.
