Egyptian national team assistant coach Mahmoud Fayez has warned the Super Eagles that his side is coming to Nigeria for all the three points at stake.
The Pharaohs are atop Group G of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations with six points and a win in Nigeria will give them nine points and an assailable lead going into match day four.
Five foreign-based players will join up with the Egypt squad for camping that starts on March 20 and then head to Nigeria two days before the game.
Fayez, who is part of an amazing 11 member back room staff that will be heading to Nigeria with the team, insists the Pharaohs will go to Nigeria with the aim of securing all three points .
“We know everything about Nigeria, we have been studying them. They are a very good side but we have our plans in place to beat them”he said.
“We think we are a capable of going to Kaduna and not just winning but also shutting them out totally. We simply cant afford to let them score and they wont, as we know what to do when we get there” Fayez told supersport.com.
“The national team needs all the support from our fans to make this possible,” he added.
