Stoke City of England midfielder, Oghenekaro Etebo says he and other players in the Super Eagles are taking Saturday’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa very seriously, but insists they are not under pressure, footballlive.ng gathered.
However, despite knowing that only a draw will see them through to Cameroon 2019, Etebo says the Nigerian players will still go all out to get victory at FNB Stadium, Johannesburg.
Etebo also stated appreciation with the comfort provided for the Eagles by Delta State government and said he is happy to see many improved facilities and structures in his state of origin.
”After our away win in Libya, the task has been made less complicated, a win or a draw gets us qualified and I am sure we will get that.
”As you can see we are taking the match very seriously, we all made sure we got back to camp on time and confidence in the team is high.
”I am surprised and excited to see this kind of facility and above all the turf, I am from Delta State as you know and throughout my time here all we had was AstroTurf.
”I appreciate the state government for this pitch but I also urge them to maintain it. As we know, the hard work is in maintaining the facility.”
