Akpoborie sees Liberia as stern test
Ex-Nigeria international, Jonathan Akpoborie, has warned that the Lone Star will not be push-overs.
Nigeria's Super Eagles will face the Lone Star over two legs in the final round of games in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualification in September and October.
Akpoborie told SuperSport.com that the game will prove to be "a good test" for Stephen Keshi's team.
However, the former VfB Stuttgart striker believes that the Nigerian team can win against Liberia provided they "work very hard for it."
"No it's not (going to be an easy game for the Super Eagles)," began Akpoborie while talking to SuperSport.com.
"But it will be a good test for the Nigerian team. It is 'win-able' for our team, but they have to work very hard for it."
In February this year, a home-grown Nigerian side defeated Liberia 2-0 in Monrovia in a friendly game with Warri Wolves' striker, Sunday Mbah scoring a double.
