Sand Eagles in the dark over Lebanon



Nigeria's Supersand Eagles have admitted knowing nothing about their Lebanese opponents ahead of their opening Copa Lagos game against Lebanon on Friday.

Supersand Eagles' head coach, Adamu 'Ejo' Audu and two of his players, Ogbonnaya Okemmiri and Ikechukwu Ibenegbu opened up to supersport.com on their lack of knowledge about the Lebanese.

Audu said though he knows nothing about the Lebanese team, "it is not enough excuse" to start their Copa Lagos Beach Soccer Worldwide defence on a losing note.

"True we don't know them but it is not enough excuse to lose our first game because it is important we start with a win," said Audu.

The Nigerian coach added that he has advised his "players to focus on their ability."

Okemmiri sounded combative and said to supersport.com: "I don't know them and they don't know me. So we will meet on the pitch."

Heartland midfielder, Ibenegbu, also referred to as Mosquito, said the Supersand Eagles will only play to their strength against Lebanon.

"We are not thinking about them. Our only focus is on ourselves right now," responded Ibenegbu.

But the Nigerians will come up against Lebanon's finest beach soccer star in striker Haitham Fattal.

The Nigeria versus Lebanon game will be live on SuperSport 9 from 5.10pm CAT (4.10pm local time).

Argentina and Portugal will open the Copa Lagos from 2.45pm local time live on your World of Champions.
