Super Eagles goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi is confident Nigeria will pick all three points against the Mediterranean Knights of Libya in today’s second leg Africa Cup of Nations 2019 qualifier fixture at the Stade Taieb Mhiri, Sfax, Tunisia.
Three goals from Odion Jude Ighalo and a last minute effort from Bordeaux winger Samuel Kalu completed the rout of the North African nation on Saturday in Uyo and the former Warri Wolves shot stopper insists that the team will pick up from where they stopped.
“I just hope we keep the performance going, I’m sure the team will pick it up from where they stopped on Saturday because the three away point is also very important considering the fact that South Africa also beat Seychelles 6 nil.
That calls for more attention on our side because now we are second on the log and we just want to keep it that way, so in today’s game, I’m sure the team will take it up from where they stopped in Uyo.”
The Eagles are currently second on the Group E log with six points while South Africa are first on the table with 7 points from three games and Libya are on 4 points after three games.
A win for the Eagles today against Libya will almost confirm Nigeria’s participation at the the 2019 edition of the Africa Cup of Nations to be staged in Cameroon.
