We are mentally ready for Libya. -Etebo


Super Eagles midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo believes today’s match against Libya at the Stade Taieb Mhiri in Sfax Tunisia will be a tough one but he is counting on his team mates to pull through in the end with the maximum three points in the bag.

The Stoke City of England midfield enforcer played all 90 minutes in the first leg in Uyo where he impressed alongside Leicester City defensive midfielder Wilfred Ndidi in the absence of veteran Ogenyi Onazi due to an Achilles injury he picked up in training.
Although the Eagles won comfortably in the first leg of the AFCON qualifier double header, Etebo Insists that “This game is going to be very crucial because we won in Uyo but that does not mean we should go and relax. We won 4 nil so they will want to revenge. We need to up our game and work harder. We need to keep our shape. If it is to defend we’ll do that. We are mentally and physically ready for the game and we hope we can get all three points.
It is expected that technical adviser of the team Gernot Rohr will continue with the same formation he played in Uyo with Torino defender Ola Aina replacing the injured Shehu Abdullahi in the right back position.
