Mozambican Mambas head coach, Maart Nooij, has urged the Super Eagles to defeat Kenya on Saturday, promising to repay them by beating the visiting Carthage Lions of Tunisia.

Nooij said that despite the injury that has sidelined his main central defender, he has a team capable of getting maximum points from the north Africans.

“Yes we have one injury problem but we will be able to defeat Tunisia, so let Nigeria win in Kenya since we will get the desired result here at the Mashaba Stadium,” he stated.

Describing the encounter as a revenge mission, Nooij, whose side lost 2_0 in the reverse game said there will be no hiding place for Tunisia, even as he added that he still needs some elements of luck to see his side go top in the match.

The tactician further revealed that the government and people of Mozambique have given the team all the support it desires saying everything possible would be done to ensure that the team gets the ticket to the 2010 African Nations Cup slated for Angola before the World Cup in June.
