Nigeria international and Glasgow Celtic defender Efe Ambrose believes that the Super Eagles are on track to being the Africa football powerhouse they were in the past despite the added pressure.
In a chat with Brila FM ahead of the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Ethiopia on October 13, Ambrose says that being African Champions, Nigeria were up for any challenge that Ethiopia may throw at them.
“The Super Eagles are gradually coming back to their old self being the Africa powerhouse of football, so it’s just left for us to keep the focus, prepare hard and play like the African Champions that we are, even though the work load is very much on us the players.
“Being African Champions also gives us the extra edge to prepare well, because we know that other teams do the same just because they want to play us,” he adds.
The Wayla Antelopes are currently in a closed camp in Addis Ababa with 24 players ahead of the clash.
