Argentina is beatable, Ewere insists

As the long awaited international friendly against the Albiceleste of Argentina draws nearer, Coach of Insurance of Benin, Rowland Ewere has said that Nigeria will come out victorious if they have adequate preparation.

The Benin-born tactician and captain of the glorious CAF and WAFU Cup winners, with Insurance of Benin said, defeating Argentina is not the main issue but the Nations Cup trophy is the ultimate.

The former El_Kanemi Warriors of Maiduguri star stated that the Super Eagles will qualify for Gabon/Equatorial Guinea 2012 despite the odds.

“Their preparation will determine the outcome of the game. I am sure that if the boys are well prepared, they can beat Argentina any day. There is no difference between them and us in terms of football except for their colour.

“Nobody will say his mother’s soup is not sweet. I cannot wish my country bad, and the only thing that I feel will mar the team’s chances for victory is if they do not get it right in training.

“I am sure the team will qualify for the Orange CAF African Cup Nations but what is paramount is for the team to win a trophy at the competition and not just qualifying,” Ewere said.
