He's going to be accompanied by Ola Aina while from South Africa we have the lone selection in the form Buhle Mkhwanazi wrapping up this segment of our side. "The players were inspired by the crowd the other evening, but I hope they don't need that sort of crowd to find that sort of inspiration".

Pinnick, who is also the 1st Vice President of CAF, then presented the sum of $75,000 promised the team by NFF's Official Optimum Partner, AITEO Group, for their three goals against Cameroon in Saturday's Round of 16 in Alexandria, while assuring them that the $20,000 per player promise made by Captain Hosea Wells Okunbo would be redeemed before Wednesday's match.
