Guinea head coach, Paul Put appears to be jubilating over the sickness and injuries rocking the camp of the Super Eagles and hopes it would work in their favour when both countries square up in tomorrow’s Group B encounter at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Put made the disclosure at Tuesday’s pre-match conference at the Alexandria Stadium.
“I hope Nigeria’s troubles with injuries and sickness plays into our hands. Maybe it’s a good sign for us.
But while hoping the injury situation in their opponent’s camp aids victory, Put however reminded his players that they have focused against a Nigeria side blessed with individual stars.
“Nigeria are a great team with good individual players and they have achieved great results. It is always a good thing and a big motivation to play against big teams like them.”
“It’s an interesting tie, and we will do all in our power to secure the win. We have to be realistic though, we have to be focused as well and I am very confident about my team’s chances. I’m counting on my players and we will do whatever it takes to win,” added the former Burkina Faso coach.
The Syli Nationale are aiming for their first victory after pulling a 2-2 draw with Madagascar last Saturday. Put, was in charge of Burkina Faso when they lost to Nigeria by a lone goal in the final of AFCON 2013 in South Africa
