Russia 2018: Enugu FA chairman optimistic of victory over Cameroon

The Chairman of Enugu State Football Association, Chidi Offor-Okenwa, has described the players invited to the country’s world cup qualifying against Cameroun as a killer squad.

Nigeria would battle Cameroun for 2018 Russian world cup first leg qualifier on Friday in Uyo, while the second leg comes up on Sept. 4 in Yaoundé, Cameroun.

Victory in the two leg matches would put Nigeria in a better position to qualify for the world cup final.

Okenwa who spoke on Wednesday in Enugu, said that “the only language Nigerians understand is victory and I am happy that the players invited for the cracker by Coach Gernot Rohr are capable of achieving victory against Cameroun.

“I know the players will give their best because their future and image are at stake in the match.
“Though Cameroun is the Nations Cup champions, but championship is different from tournament.

“Every national team is playing for victory and we are going to face Cameroun as a nation and not as African champions,’’ he said.

Okenwa said that he expected the invited players to fight from all angles to ensure victory at the end of the match.

“I believe that Nigeria will garner the six points against Cameroun come Sept. 1 and Sept. 4, or at worst win in Uyo and draw in Cameroun.

“We started well and we are going to finish well, that is what we are going to experience at the end of the qualifier, ’’ Okenwa said.
