Egypt defender, Omar Fayed insists the Young Pharaohs will approach Wednesday’s (today) Group A clash against the Flying Eagles of Nigeria with full confidence.
The Flying Eagles, despite the defeat to Senegal in their opening fixture, are favourites heading into the game.
Ladan Bosso’s side have won seven titles at this level and have lost only once in their last 20 outings.
Fayed and his teammates put up a good performance in the 0-0 draw against Mozambique in their first game.
The Arab Contractors player believes they have what is takes to beat the Flying Eagles.
“We respect all the teams, but we are not afraid to play against any team,” the young defender told CAFonline.
“Our goal is to get the three points and we will fight for the win.”
