As the time approaches faster for the March 25 all-important 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier between the Super Eagles and the Pharaohs of Egypt in Kaduna, the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Solomon Arase, has urged the Nigerian senior team to make its defence impenetrable for the visitors.
As the time approaches faster for the March 25 all-important 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier between the Super Eagles and the Pharaohs of Egypt in Kaduna, the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Solomon Arase, has urged the Nigerian senior team to make its defence impenetrable for the visitors.

The Eagles will be filing out at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium Kaduna to trade tackles against the visiting Egyptians in a must-win encounter to bolster their hope of returning to the AFCON after missing out on the last edition in 2015.

The Nigerians will be heading for the return fixtures in Alexandria, Egypt in four days after and avoid defeat.

Speaking with sports journalists at the National Stadium, Abuja, last weekend, shortly after the opening ceremony of the 11th biennial Police Games, the Inspector-General of Police warned the Eagles against conceding any goals, which he said would be of advantage to the visitors.

In order to avoid this, Arase said the Eagles had to make sure that their defence was solid, adding that while ensuring this, the team had to equally score the vitals goals to give Nigeria the much-needed victory.

“We have to make sure that our defence is very solid; that we don’t concede any goal because if we do, it is an advantage to the team that is visiting,” he admonished.

According to the police boss, “once we are able to ensure that our defence is good and we are able to score; we have the assets to do that, I think we are home and dry.”

He, however, assured football-loving Nigerians that adequate security measures had been put in place by the police to ensure a hitch-free match in Kaduna.

He informed that police authorities had held discussions with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) President, Amaju Pinnick and Super Eagles interim head coach, Samson Siasia, declaring that a very robust security measure had been emplaced.
