#CHAN2018: Libya coach Al-Marimi not ready to gamble against Eagles

A combination of ill luck and poor finishing ensured Nigeria did not beat Rwanda as widely predicted Monday.

Rwanda goalie Eric Ndayishimiye pulled brilliant saves to keep the bullish football power house at bay.

The President of Esteem Sports, Kelechi Eke, says the home-based Super Eagles have to get a good striker who had the skill to convert opportunities into goals.

They will be playing Libya which is now topping their group with three points on January 19 in their second leg match. With veteran Rabiu Ali leading Nigeria's onslaughts, youngster Sunday Faleye was unlucky to see his header from Osas Okoro's assist bounce off the crossbar in the opening minutes with Ndayishimiye completely beaten. The second half resumed on the same tempo with Rwanda coming into the picture following the introduction of nimble footed AS Kigali midfielder Savio Nshuti.

The Eagles, who hit the woodwork three times, failed to capitalize on their superiority in the game. "The game against Equatorial Guinea will be tough, and we have to be ready to do much better".

With a goalless draw, Rwanda secured a point and is left with two matches against Equatorial Guinea on Friday, January 19 and Libya on January 23 before completing the group stage campaign.

"It has worked for us even though we were a bit lucky". It will be an open match. The main objective was not to suffer defeat in the first match. I will not put pressure on the players. We know everyone expected a lot from us but we will remain focused and determined as a team to win the next game against Libya.

Taher scored a brace to fire the Libyans to victory over Equatorial Guinea.
