Nigerian and Eskisehierspor midfielder Raheem Lawal is confident that the Super Eagles will qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco. The Super Eagles midfielder has expressed hope about Nigeria’s chances of picking an away win in Congo as well as qualifying for the 2015 Africa Nations Cup in Morocco.
Lawal said the game against Claude Le Roy’s men will be tough but the Eagles will give the encounter their all towards securing maximum point that will brighten their Africa Cup of Nations chances.
“The game (against Congo) will be very tough but I can assure you that we will return home with a win. On a personal note, I’m looking forward to the game, and if I get an invite from the national team selectors, it will be business as usual as I’ll be ready to spill my blood for the country’s success.
“The Congolese are a very strong side and we won’t underestimate them and if they could get a win in Nigeria, then I don’t see anything stopping us from paying them back before their home fans.
Lawal said Eagles are ready to spill their blood against the Congolese in Brazzaville no matter where they take the game to. “It doesn’t matter where Congo will take us to, all that matter is a good win. We [Eagles] are aware of the importance of the game and we have no excuse to fail,” he added.
Nigeria will slug it out with Congo in a make or break encounter in Pointe-Noire on November 15.
