Super Eagles coach and players have told Nigerians to expect the very best from them when they take on Rwanda tomorrow in Calabar.
Speaking after their training yesterday, coach Stephen Keshi who also promised harvest of goals in the encounter said the players’ performance in the match will be better than what Nigerians have seen of the team in recent time.
“All I can tell you is that the players are in high spirits and they know what is at stake in the match, so I’m sure that that they will be out to give their best on Saturday. We have put the disappointment of the previous games behind us, as we are looking forward to the coming match,” he said.
Also speaking after the training was Elderson Echiejile, who believes that the team can only appease Nigerians by beating the visitors by many goals tomorrow.
“Truly, we have not been able to give Nigerians what they expect in terms of goals, but I am sure that the match against Rwanda will be different,” he said.
Meanwhile, Ambrose Efe has also predicted that the match will tough going by the result of the first leg which ended in a draw in Kigali last February.
“It is going to be a tough game because we held them to a goalless draw in Kigali, and they will want to come here like wounded lions, but we are ready for them because nothing can stop us from winning the match.”
The Super Eagles will conclude their busy June schedule on Saturday when they play the Amavubi of Rwanda in the last game of the first round qualifiers of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
