Kalu: We’ll Be Aggressive Again On Tuesday


Girondins-Bordeaux of France winger, Samuel Kalu has provided a hint into the pattern he and his colleagues in the Super Eagles will employ against Libya on Tuesday, as he says they will be as aggressive as they were in the first leg.

Kalu, who scored the final goal in Nigeria’s 4-0 first leg win with a curling drive from outside the box on the dot of 90 minutes, reasoned that the Libyans will be tougher to handle this time, as they will not want to lose for the second straight match, but he says the Eagles will get it right.

The former SK Trencin of Slovakia and KAA Gent of Belgium star further stated that he is confident the Eagles will pick their third win on the spin in the AFCON 2019 qualifiers.

Kalu, who earned his second cap for Nigeria on Saturday at Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo, said he is happy to have scored his first senior national team goal and enthused that more will come.

Kalu said: “I am well pleased to have scored my first goal for the national team. It’s a dream come true.

“As a young boy playing football on the streets, I always dreamt of scoring for Nigeria, and to have achieved this is wonderful.

”We will approach (Tuesday’s) match with the same aggressive way like we did in Uyo.

”It’s not going to be easy because the Libyans want to respond to their heavy loss but I am confident we will get the right result.

“We are definitely going into that match with a mindset of get all three points.”
