Gavin Jeanne knows the task will be difficult, but he will devise a tactical pattern to clip the wings of the Super Eagles.
What makes the Eagles so Super? They are highly rated in Africa because of their array of talents and achievements on the continent. Three AFCON titles and Five World Cup appearances makes the Eagles dreaded.
