Super Eagles promise Revenge !

123457890Super Eagles stars have vowed to lift their game when two West African heavyweights,Nigeria and Cote d’Ivoire clash on Sunday at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenberg in the headline game of the quarter finals of the 29th Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

The Ivoriens stopped Nigeria at the 2006 and 2008 AFCONS but Chelsea midfielder,Mikel Obi insists the Eagles are not afraid of Didier Drogba-led Ivoriens.

“We hope to go past Cote d’Ivoire and make it to the final of the Africa Cup of Nations,” Mikel told the media following Nigeria’s Group C win over Ethiopia on Tuesday.

The coach demands 110 percent for us at all times and on Sunday against Cote d’Ivoire, we will give 110 percent.”
Emenike added: “We are not afraid of them. We respect them but why should we be afraid of them?

“This is football and no team is too big and we are very positive we will win on Sunday.” Nigeria coach,Stephen Keshi believes Sunday’s fixture will bring out the best in his team.

“Taking on Cote D’Ivoire is a different ball game, it is a different mentality – everything is different because it is not going to be the same as preparing against Ethiopia or the last two teams we played against,” he said.

Keshi also praised the effort of Enugu Rangers midfielder Sunday Mba who made his first start in the tournament against Ethiopia.

“Mba was wonderful, he played so well and I’m happy for him. We’re trying to introduce young players who Mikel, Yobo and Enyeama can direct on the field.

“What we’re looking at is not just the Cup of Nations but how we will be able to build a very outstanding team for Nigeria in the next five years,” Keshi said.
