Former Eagles captain, Austin Jay Jay Okocha has declared that Tunisia will be beaten in Maputo by the Black Mambas in the last games of the 2010 World Cup qualifiers.


The midfield maestro who is also a member of the Presidential Task Force committee is more worried about the Eagles winning in Nairobi.

“Maputo is a difficult place to play. I can place my bet that Tunisia will not get a point. But we have to concentrate on winning our game,” said Okocha in Abuja.

Kenya with nothing to loose are home to the Eagles and judging by their spirited fight in Rades after they conceded an early goal to Tunisia, Eagles coach Shuaibu Amodu who has not won any game away during the qualifiers campaign has to employ the right tactics and personnel to get a good result.

In preparation for the tie, Tunisia played against Saudi Arabia in a friendly match on Wednesday, while the Eagles did not utilise the interntional free day to access their chances and preparations.
