"Our boys are in the best form for the Egypt game, and if they reproduces such form in Kaduna on Friday, goals will rain against the visitors,” Amaju told Complete Sports.

“Already, some of the players have called to reassure us that they would show no mercy against Egypt and I believe them.

“We are not taking any chances against the Pharaohs.”

Pinnick further added that he is looking at the form of Premier League based Eagles, Odion Ighalo,John Obi Mikel and Alex Iwobi.

“What we are praying for is that our foreign based players give the game their best and win the first leg before going for the final kill in the second leg duel,” Pinnick added.

“They (Egypt), might also boast of the form of Salah and Elneny, but we have better quality players whose experience will get us this much needed victory.

“The boys are self motivated to beating the Pharaohs and the NFF on our part will give them all the necessary support and logistics to win."
