Improving Nigeria eye quarterfinal place

Nigeria, who will reach the Africa Cup of Nations quarterfinals with at least a draw against Mozambique in their last Group C game in Lubango on Wednesday, believe they are hitting their stride. Catch the action live on SS3 and SS4 from 5:30pm

The Super Eagles are second in the group on three points, three behind Egypt who face Benin in Benguela (4pm GMT).

"We lacked confidence against Egypt in our first game (a 3-1 defeat) but were much more relaxed when beating Benin (1-0) and I believe we will deliver an even better performance on Wednesday," said Nigeria striker Peter Odemwingie.

"Mozambique are a team we know, having played them twice last year, and I am confident we will give our best display so far in Angola, win the match and advance to the last eight."

The last meeting between Nigeria and Mozambique ended in a goalless stalemate in a World Cup qualifier in Maputo last March.

Benin and Mozambique, both on one point, have never made it past the first round at the Africa Cup of Nations.
