Keshi promises Nigeria no disappointment



Super Eagles' manager, Stephen Keshi has assured Nigerians that his wards will not disappoint against the Elephants of Cote d' Ivoire.

Both West African sides will clash in the quarterfinals in Rustenburg at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa on Sunday.

Keshi said report of fans back home being scared of the Ivorians is unnecessary and unfounded.

"If you must win a trophy you must beat the biggest and best teams so why should we be afraid of any team.

"The bigger they come the bigger they will fall. Who told you that if it was to be the Hawks of Togo it will be a walk-over?

"There is no small team anywhere and the Ivorians know. It’s a classic match and we'll show why we are the Super Eagles on Sunday," said the former Nigerian defender.

Keshi said the spirit in camp has been very good so far and all the 23 players in the squad are all healthy and ready to give their best.

"Nigerians should just be praying for the team and have belief in them instead of expressing fear because on Sunday it will be 11 players from Ivory Coast against the same number from Nigeria," he said

Eagles' captain and defender, Joseph Yobo said the game will be an exciting one for him as he is eagerly looking forward to the epic duel.

"They are a great team and so we are and we know ourselves well so no one is afraid of each other. It's just a case of top football giants clashing at the wrong time. I think we shall be up for it," he said.
