Leganes of Spain defender, Kenneth Omeruo has assured Nigerian soccer fans that he and his colleagues in the Super Eagles will get victory away to South Afirca next weekend, because he says they know how to handle Bafana Bafana.
Although the Eagles will be away at FNB Stadium, Johannesburg in the Africa Cup of Nations decisive qualifier, footballllive.ng gathered that Omeruo is staying upbeat for maximum points.
The dark-skinned stopper, who is on loan at Leganes from Chelsea of England, said the Eagles’ technical crew, led by Franco-German boss, Gernot Rohr, has given them enough clues of how to beat their hosts.
Omeruo recounted how South Africa gave Rohr his first defeat as Eagles’ coach, while also notching their first ever victory against Nigeria during the first leg in Uyo, but stressed that the story will be different next Saturday, November 17.
Charting a course into the match at Soccer City, Omeruo stressed that the Eagles will win in Johannesburg to reclaim pride after losing the first leg 2-0 at home in June last year.
Omeruo declared: “The game against South Africa is a very important one because it’s a game we have to win, not just for our pride, but also for the country and to put us back in the Nations Cup come next year.
“The technical crew provide us with more than enough to know our opponents very well – how they play and how they move around.
“We have capable hands to win this game; it doesn’t matter where we are playing, we are going to give everything to get maximum points.”
