Iroha talks tough ahead AAG duel

Dream Team V assistant coach Ben Iroha has said that his lads will see off the opposition of Ghana’s Black Meteors in the 2011 All Africa Games qualifier billed for the Samuel Ogbemudia stadium, Benin City on Saturday.

Still relishing his wards elimination of the Vijana Stars of Tanzania from the 2012 London Olympic Games race on Sunday, Iroha told that they are determined to go the extra miles to ensure they record convincing victory.

“We are condemned to win the encounter, we are aware of the rivalry between Nigeria and Ghana; we know the game will be hot, hotter than what Tanzanians presented, so we are putting everything in the right place to take on them.

“Dream Team V wants to feature in all competitions, we are just a few legs to the London 2012 Olympics and after Saturday’s All Africa Games qualifier we will be two legs to the games.

“Ghana are good, our boys, too, are good and they have vowed to beat Ghana silly at least to make the return leg a mere formality.”

The former Nigerian international who informed that there is no injury worries among the players hinted that Ghana cannot deny Nigerian teams the All Africa Games’ ticket twice.

Ghana’s Black Princess knocked out the Super Falcons from the women football event of the continent equivalent of Olympics.

“There is no major injury worry among the players, we have a couple of knocks, it is normal, it is something that will go off in a few days.

“Ghana’s women team eliminated Super Falcons from the All Africa Games football event, the men’s team cannot stop us, it will be an abomination for us to fail twice to them,” he said.
