Tunisia's Naim Sliti celebrates after scoring against Madagascar during their CAN quarter-final match on Thursday.

The Super Eagles finished top of a section including 2017 African champions Cameroon and Algeria on the road to Russian Federation previous year, defeating the Desert Foxes 3-1 at home before a 1-1 draw in the return fixture.

"We are not anxious about the way they've played and their unbeaten run".

Abuja - Mutiu Adepoju, ex- Super Eagles player, has urged the national football squad to sustain the team spirit in camp as they move closer towards lifting the 2019 AFCON in Egypt.

Odion Ighalo, Nigeria's point man at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, says the semi-final clash against Algeria will be "tougher" for the Super Eagles than previous matches.

"We know it is nearly like a final, Algeria one of the best teams in Africa with quality players but also we have confidence and after the game against South Africa we have more passion and we're looking forward to the game", Iwobi told Goal.

The league is set to roll out the automated balls and strikes system to each of its eight ballparks in the coming weeks. The game between the Liberty Division and Freedom Division all-stars ended in a 3-3 tie.

Iwobi further stated: "Cameroon, considering we were losing before winning, it wasn't only physical but mentally it was a very big challenge for us and to overcome that loss and win was very good for us".

Another businessman Femi Otedola also promised $25,000 million which is a half of what Dangote tabled.

Nigeria will play their 14th semi-final in AFCON, more than any other team. They then walloped Guinea 3-0 in the round of 16 before beating Cote' d'Ivoire in the quarter-finals to set up tomorrow's clash with the Super Eagles. They all play at good clubs and have good physical trainers too.

The Eagles were beaten 2-0 by the Barea at Alexandria Stadium in their last Group B encounter nearly two weeks ago.

The Foxes' performance of five victories in Egypt in the most convincing fashion is no doubt intimidating but a former Nigerian worldwide, Barnabas Imenger is confident that if the Super Eagles will sustain the present momentum, they would reach their eighth AFCON finals.

"We have nine strikers in the team, played seven but we can not play all of them at the same time". They won thanks to a late goal by William Troost-Ekong to get $15,000.
