Super Eagles’ stand-in captain, Vincent Enyeama, has declared that they will have no excuses for not making a positive result in the first leg of their World Cup qualifier playoff tie against Ethiopia on Sunday.
Lille’s number one squashed fears that Ethiopia’s high altitude could have adverse effect on the Eagles. He said that they are training hard to keep their chances high.
Enyeama also said that the Eagles are aware of the stakes involved in the game and that to secure the World Cup qualifier ticket they have to win at the Addis Ababa Stadium on Sunday.
“We just have to keep working hard, it’s the most important game for the year and we really know what’s at stake in Brazil and we have to be there.”
“We just have to win, it’s not going to come on a platter of gold or a bed of roses. We just have to work hard and train hard and we will get the result we want,” he said.
The return leg of the game will be played on November 16 at the UJ Esuene Stadium, Calabar, where the Eagles have never lost a game.
