Enyeama braces up for ‘dirty’ game

Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama is bracing up for a ‘dirty’ albeit ‘great’ war of attrition when Nigeria take on Tunisia in Sunday’s 2010 World Cup qualifier in Abuja on Sunday, but says the Super Eagles are prepared for everything.


Both sides go head to head in the tussle for group leadership, with the Super Eagles trailing the Carthage Eagles by two points, as the race to South Africa enters the final bend before the closing straight.

“It is going to be a great dirty game with a lot of bad tackles,” Enyeama told “There will also be a lot of tactics. They will sit back and defend and look to hit us on the break. It is going to be difficult but we are prepared for all that and God will help us.”

And Enyeama, who last played at the 2002 World Cup in Korea/Japan, says he is determined to be in South Africa 2010.“Going to the World Cup again will be my greatest dream come true and so pray for God to help us.”
