Super Eagles media officer, Toyin Ibitoye has disclosed that the team will remain humble all the way till the end of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, as he says they cannot afford to relax until the last match.
With a potentially explosive penultimate clash away to South Africa lurking round the corner in November, Ibitoye said Friday morning on radio sports programme monitored by footballlive.ng that the Eagles will not lose focus on the task of making it to Cameroon 2019.
Ibitoye stressed that Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has always told his players to be humble in victory and avoid losing concentration, which he says they are now doing after silencing Libya home and away.
The ace broadcaster disclosed that the players are staying humble, but at the same time also committed, dedicated and determined to make a return to the Nations Cup, after missing the past two editions.
“We are happy to win home and away, which shows the quality this team is made of, but we remain humble, in spite of our achievements.
“The match against South Africa is the next one to think about, and all the players are still humble, committed, dedicated, determined and fully focused to make the country proud.
“They are ready to keep their focus on the next match in November and then all the way to March, when the qualifiers come to an end. That’s why we need to get a decent result in Johannesburg.”
