Former Super Eagles’ goalkeeper, Peter Rufai, has charged the Super Eagles to go for victory when they confront Ghana in a friendly match scheduled for London on Tuesday, 9 August.
Rufai told P.M.Sportsonline in Lagos that losing to Ghana will be a serious setback for the senior national team preparing for Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Madagascar next month.
He admitted that the friendly match will be a crunch battle, but noted that Nigerians will be happy if Samson Siasia and his team can beat their West African football rivals.
â€œThe friendly match should not be taken lightly at all. It has been long we beat Ghana and I think this is the time to show our supremacy over them,â€ he said.
