EGWUEKWE: WE'LL SPANK LIBERIA IN CALABAR
Posted: Sep 14, 2012
Emerging Super Eagles defender, Azubuike Egwuekwe, has posited that the senior national team will make up for the sloppy 2-2 draw they secured in Monrovia when the Lone Star come for the reverse fixture of the 2013 AFCON final round of qualifiers in Calabar on October 13.
The Warri Wolvescentre-back said that the first leg match was an eye opener but added that the Super Eagles were able to overcome a lot of the Liberian antics to pick the draw.
"That (the 2-2draw) was not our target going into the game. We wanted to go there and win," Egwuekwe said.
"But it was not to be because there were a lot of things that went wrong including the pitch and all that. But that is football.
"Sometimes the result will not go your way so you are encouraged to fight harder.
"We have to beat them in the second leg' there is no two ways about it. The (2013 Nations Cup) ticket is now within reach despite the first leg draw. It is a challenge for us to worker harder which we must do in the return leg match.
"We are determined to go to the Nations Cup and we cannot afford to make any mistakes having reached this far," Egwuekwe added.
The Warri Wolves defender has become a regular Eagles player under coach Stephen Keshi and he was in action in Monrovia.
