Operation attack Tunisia•Go all out and humiliate Carthage Eagles – Iroha advises Amodu

Former Super Eagles’ defence marshal, Benedict Iroha, has advised Shaibu Amodu to line out the best in his arsenal against the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia.
On September 6, at the Abuja National Stadium, Nigeria’s dream of getting closer to South Africa 2010 World Cup ticket will either be realised or scuttled.

In a chat with Daily Sunsport before his departure to Tunis with Heartland FC of Owerri for CAF continental duel against Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia, Iroha declared that he believes that the North African team could be successfully tamed in Abuja.

The FIFA Under-17 (Korea 2007) World Cup winning coach, said the best formula Amodu should apply against the Carthage Eagles would be attacking football.
Iroha stated that if the Super Eagles’ coach would use the best of his attacking formation, the visitors would definitely crumble like a pack of cards.
He expressed happiness on the list of invited players for the September 6 duel, adding that Tunisia lost the game on their home soil when they struggled to a goaless draw with Nigeria during the first leg encounter.

The Heartland FC of Owerri coach revealed that if his Naze Millionaires could bang in three unreplied goals against Etoile de Sahel that have most of their players in the Tunisian national team, during their CAF Champions League encounter, Super Eagles could equally do better in Abuja.
"Amodu should use the best of attacking football against Tunisia. He did it in Rades when we played the first leg, he should just intensify his formation in Abuja.

"I am happy with the players the coach has brought in for the September 6 encounter. I don’t see the Tunisian escaping from Abuja without defeat.
"In the CAF Champions League, Heartland were able to play the North Africans and won them with three goals in our favour. With this, I mean that Super Eagles can equally beat the Carthage Eagles, of which most of their players are in Etoile du Sahel. Based on our encounter with the team, I believe that we can subdued Tunisia with the best of attack," Iroha stated.

Super Eagles are trailing with five points behind Tunisia, who have seven points from three matches in Group B. Tunisia won two of their games against Kenya and Mozambique, but drew with Nigeria.
Super Eagles drew two of their games and won against Harambee Stars of Kenya in Abuja.
