Eagles motivated to defeat Libya


SWAN Selected attacker Adams Jesse feels Nigeria is motivated to beat Libya in their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Group E qualifier on Saturday.

Nigeria lock horns with the North African side in an all important cracker at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium with each in need of points.

The Super Eagles breathed life into their campaign when they defeated Seychelles 3-0 last month in an away fixture while the Mediterranean Knights picked an impressive 0-0 draw in South Africa.

Despite Nigeria being in a must-win situation, Adams Jesse who was named man of the match in SWAN Selected’s 3-1 win over Akwa Ibom SWAN told Footballlive.ng’s Ademetan Abayomi that Nigeria are motivated to beat Libya.

“The Super Eagles look more likely to win the match on Saturday and are more motivated judging from their performance against Seychelles,” he told Footballlive.ng

“I don’t think they (Libya) can stop us on Saturday. With the mood of the Super Eagles in camp, victory is assured.”

Meanwhile, Adams Jesse was happy to have scored two goals and provided an assist in SWAN Selected’s 3-1 win over Akwa Ibom SWAN at the Practise Pitch of the Godswill Akpabio Stadium on Friday night.
