A former Green Eagles goalkeeper, Emmanuel Okala, on Tuesday in Enugu asked for prayers from Nigerians for the Super Eagles to beat Tunisia on Wednesday in Cairo.

The Super Eagles will face the Carthage Eagles in the third-place match of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt.

Okala, who helped Nigeria to win their first AFCON title in 1980 AFCON Cup, told NAN that the team needed the support and prayers of Nigerians now more than before.

A former midfielder with Rangers International, Arthur Ebunam, also called on the Super Eagles’ handlers to replace the team’s current goalkeeper.

Ebunam, who also played for Mighty Jets FC of Jos and El-Kanemi Warriors FC of Maiduguri, noted that it would be difficult for the Eagles to win the match without a fresh goalkeeper.
