Westerhof backs Eagles to win in Algeria


Former Super Eagles coach, Clemens Westerhof  has urged the national team not to relent in the final World Cup qualifying game against the Fennec Foxes today in Constantine, Algeria.

Westhof who coached Nigeria to her debut World Cup in 1994 argued that the Algerians in recent  World Cup qualification ties have not beaten the Super Eagles.


According to clemens, the Super Eagles must win in Algeria, “We (referring to his Super Eagles squad of 1994) drew to go to the World Cup (in USA 1994).

“In 2006, The Super Eagles won in Algeria. “The Super Eagles are strong again. “They have already qualified for the World Cup in Russia, so they must finish the job in Algeria.”

There have been 18 competitive games between Nigeria and Algeria with the West African country holding the head-to-head advantage with nine wins, six defeats and three draws going into Friday’s clash.
