Mikel Agu ruled out Algeria, Argentina games

09 November 2017

Group, Mr. Onyekachi Onubogu has charged the Super Eagles of Nigeria to go for victory against Algeria in their last World Cup qualification match scheduled for November 10th in Algiers.

The Bursaspor midfielder played 46 minutes in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Kasimpasa and was one of the early arrivals in the Super Eagles camp in Rabat.

The Super Eagles will miss the services of some regular players in the forthcoming games against Algeria and Argentina, but the Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, sees the development as an opportunity for other players.

Balogun suffered the injury at Schalke 04 and was operated on immediately, and initially looked like missing the Eagles forthcoming matches, but he insisted he will be back in action for the national team.

"They have changed their coach and have not won a game at home yet in the qualifiers and so they will be very aggressive". They have some of the best players, like Mahrez, Brahimi, Silimani, among others. It will be an opportunity to see players who didn't play so much and it will be very interesting to play Algeria in these conditions.

"They have good players".

Rohr said: "We only have three days to prepare for Algeria because the game is taking place on Friday, but we have the opportunity in the second game to see everybody. Even if I am not in the team today, I will keep praying for the players and working hard because the coach needs the best at the World Cup next year".

"All the games are important, It is right that we have already qualified and the result is not the most important thing. the most important thing will be to make a good game, we always play to make a good game and a good result".

The Nigerian team will on Saturday move to Krasnodar in Russian Federation, where they will face Argentina in an global friendly on Tuesday.
