Super Eagles players have been spitting fire ahead of tomorrow’s 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying cracker against the Amavubi of Rwanda in Kigali.
The players said they are prepared to go to any length to secure victory against the Rwandans.
Fulham defensive midfielder, Dikson Etuhu, said all members of the team are ready to give their best when they file out against the Amavubi tomorrow.
“We are ready to do our best in the match. And the same thing applies to all the players in the team. Our aim is to win tomorrow’s match in Kigali. And we will win the match, though we will be playing the game on synthetic grass,” said Etuhu.
Former England youth international and Wigan Athletic striker, Victor Moses, declared that Nigeria will win the match, adding that his teammates know the importance of the match to Nigerians.
“I am happy to be here to play for Nigeria. I was born here and I am happy to be home. We are going to win the match because we know how important this match is to us and Nigerians,” said Moses, who will be putting to rest speculation surrounding his senior international career after playing for England’s junior teams.
West Bromwich Albion striker, Osaze Odemwingie, and skipper Joseph Yobo said the team want to use the match to win back the hearts of Nigerian fans, having let them down by not qualifying for the last Africa Cup of Nations.
“We are going to fight hard to defeat Rwanda in Kigali. We want to win the match because we know that we have let Nigerians down by not qualifying for the last nations cup,” said Odemwingie.
