Antelopes remain a threat till final whistle



Former Nigerian winger, Friday Elahor, has warned the Super Eagles that the Walya Antelopes of Ethiopia are a threat.

Nigeria and Ethiopia go head-to-head in the last round of group games at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Rustenburg, South Africa on Tuesday.

Elahor warned his countrymen that the East African nation will not be a stroll in the park as being perceived in some quarters.

"The Ethiopians will be a threat. The boys shouldn't expect an easy game or that they will just stroll past them. They have shown they can play very well and our boys need to be careful and put up a good show. So no one should think they will be easy to beat.

"I'm a bit disappointed with the performance of our team so far. It's a talented team but they need to really step up their game and they need to do so against Ethiopia," said Elahor.

Elahor, who played for Nigeria at the 1990 Afcon when finished as runners-up, believes the Super Eagles know the task ahead of their clash against Walya Antelopes.

The ex-Bendel Insurance man also advised the Nigerian squad to work on their concentration levels.

"It's a big competition and I believe the team know they need to beat Ethiopia to qualify for the next stage. Also they need to concentrate 100 percent till the last minutes of the game if they want to win," he said.

Nigeria need an outright win against Ethiopia to ensure qualification for the quarterfinals.
