Super Eaglesâ€™ Coach, Samson Siasia, has vowed that Nigeria will defeat Madagascar in the 28th African Nations Cup qualifying cracker scheduled for Antanarivo next month.
Siasia made the declaration yesterday while speaking on Brila F.M.
The former Nigeria international explained that what the Super Eagles can do at the moment is to prepare for the coming match since they will not be engaged in any match before they leave for Antanarivo.
â€œWe have no more games to play before the Madagascar match. We just want to focus on the coming match. We know how important the match is to Nigerians and we are ready to give our best for the match,â€ said Siasia.
The Eaglesâ€™ gaffer said the players have already been contacted and asked to get set for the must- win match.
â€œWe have 30 players to pick from for the important match. We have told the players to get set for the match. Since they have been informed to get set we are not going to take excuses,â€ Said Siasia.
Meanwhile, African Football Confederation (CAF) have appointed Kenyan referees to officiate the all important match.
