Pharoahs of Egypt head coach Carlos Queiroz says his target against the Super Eagles of Nigeria, in their Group D 2021 AFCON opener is to secure all the three points.

The seven-time African champions will hope to replicate their Angola 2010 AFCON feat against the Eagles.

Under legendary coach Hassan Shehata, Egypt came from a goal down to defeat the Eagles 3-1 in their first group game.

They went on to secure their seventh AFCON title after pipping Ghana 1-0 in the final.

And ahead of next week Tuesday’s heavyweight encounter Queiroz, quoted on kingfut.com, said:”Our goal in the AFCON is to try to win every game, build a winning mentality because in March we will play the final stage of the qualifiers.

“I will only have four days before it. I know that Egypt has a great history in the AFCON, but our goal remains to qualify for the World Cup. I was not the one who set qualifying for the World Cup as the main goal for the team.

“FIFA put the Club World Cup at the same time as the AFCON, and this reflects on the importance of the qualifiers, which will take place by themselves in March.

“We have to play better than the team was 10 years ago. All the teams that we will face in the tournament are doing better now than they were in 2010. We’re not going to AFCON to take a walk, we are going to win.

“We need a winning mentality, when we win the first game we will want to win the next match and so on, this is our mentality. I want a stable, strong, and harmonious team that is able to go to the final stage of the qualifiers.”
