Finidi George Targets Second Win As S’ Eagles Meet Mali Today

Former World Cup star, Finidi George has reiterated his desire to make it two wins from two games following his selection as the Super Eagles interim coach.

The Enyimba coach was selected to take interim charge of Nigeria in this international window, ahead of today’s clash with Les Aigles of Mali in Marrakech, Morocco.

The two West African teams clash in a night game at the Grand Stade de Marrakech, where the three-time African champions put up a show to defeat arch-rivals Ghana 2-1 on Friday.

George must now do without defender Calvin Bassey and horsepower midfielder Frank Onyeka, who are injured and will not be part of tonight’s ensemble against the 1972 AFCON runners-up.

Already, the Super Eagles have been highly-strung by the absence of key men like forwards Victor Osimhen and Victor Boniface, and defenders William Ekong, Olaoluwa Aina and Zaidu Sanusi. Defenders Gabriel Osho and Tyronne Ebuehi, and forward Taiwo Awoniyi also had to pull out because of injuries.

Yet, the former Ajax Amsterdam and Real Betis winger is upbeat that those who dimmed the Black Stars will also fly above the other Eagles.
