2022 World Cup Qualifiers: How Super Eagles can avoid Liberia upset – Kayode

Nigeria are eyeing a seventh World Cup berth, nonetheless, they must negotiate their way past Peter Butler’s men first

Super Eagles must not underrate Liberia and must be efficient in front of goal if they are to neutralise the Lone Star’s plans of causing an upset in Lagos, according to experienced football administrator Olugbenga Kayode.

The Super Eagles take on Peter Butler’s men as they commence their campaign for a ticket to the 2022 Fifa World Cup in Qatar, on Friday.

Although Gernot Rohr’s men are favourites to secure all points at stake, they have been warned towards avoiding a repeat of what happened in 2001.

Then, Shaibu Amodu endured a tortuous route to pick a ticket to the 2002 World Cup – needing to beat Ghana 3-0 on the last day to shrug off Liberia by just one point.

Wary of that fact, the Inspiration Football Academy boss has highlighted what the three-time African champions must do to cruise to a flawless victory at the Teslim Balogun Stadium.

“It is a known fact that there are no underdogs in football, what the Super Eagles need to do is to put up a good fight from the blast of the whistle until full-time,” Kayode told Goal.
