Super Eagles Chief Coach Emmanuel Amuneke said the second leg of the FIFA World Cup qualification playoff against Ghana won’t be an easy one but expects the Super Eagles to pull through.
The Super Eagles are heading into the return leg as the favorite, after recording a 0-0 draw in Kumasi on Friday.
The three-time African Champions will be hoping to replicate the 2001 feat that saw them draw away to Ghana before beating them 3-0 in Nigeria during the qualifiers for the 2002 World Cup.
Speaking ahead of the game, Amuneke said it won’t be a stroll in the park for them. He then charged the players to give their best and ensure that Nigeria qualifies for the World Cup.
“The Ghanaians also want to be at the World Cup, like us, they have players who are based in Europe and they understood the assignment.”
“So, we have to respect them and play our hearts out.”
“We are aware that it’s not going to be an easy game, but I’m sure we’ll carry the day .” He said.
The second leg will be played at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja on Tuesday.
