Ezenwa: Home Eagles Won’t Underrate Angola In CHAN Quarter-Final

By Adeboye Amosu: Home-based Super Eagles captain, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, insists the team is battle ready for Sunday’s African Nations Championship quarter-final clash against Angola, Completesportsnigeria.com (CSN) reports.

The Home Eagles secured their passage to the quarter-finals after coming from a goal down to beat Equatorial Guinea 3-1 in their final group game on Tuesday, while Angola booked their spot after battling to a 0-0 draw against Congo.

Nigeria topped Group C with two wins and a draw, while the Angolans came second in Group D behind Congo following a win and two draws from their three group games.

“We are firmly focused on the game against Angola. Our main target is to win the trophy but we must take it one game at a time,” Ezenwa told CSN.

“At this stage of the competition, there is little room for mistake as it could prove costly.

“Angola have done well by getting to this stage of the competition and we have to respect and not underrate them even though they finished second in their group.

“We have to prepare very well for the game and give our best to make sure we scale through.”

  • Ezenwa, we were not satisfied with you and the team’s display vs Equatorial Guinea. As soft as EG, you allowed them to score first. Most of the players were having heavy legs. Is it tiredness? Whatever it is, Angola is a tougher fish. If you allows them to score first, they will lock the gate. They are better than Equatorial Guinea. Our attackers are the worse among the 8 teams for the q-finals. The coach’s job is also the line. I guess the news that a Swedish coach is now handling the Super Falcons has reached the camp in Morocco. Good. A foreign coach can be employed for the CHAN Eagles. Better still the National team coach can also handle the CHAN Eagles. So if you do anyhow you go see anyhow. I wish you all the best.
