Hull City and Nigeria striker Sone Aluko wants Nigerian fans to get behind the Super Eagles as the team gets set to play Sudan on Wednesday. Aluko, who didn’t make the match day squad for the 1-0 loss in Khartoum last weekend, is optimistic that the Eagles can bounce back to winning ways again.
“The game with Sudan is one of those bad days in the office as we failed to get the desired result,” he said. “We had the game in our hands in the opening exchanges but couldn’t score when we had the chances.
“Unfortunately Sudan grew in confidence and were able to get their goal. Everyone is sad we lost but we must forge ahead,” Aluko added.
Aluko feels all is not lost and wants the fans to keep the faith and support the team as they try to salvage what is left of the qualifying campaign.”I believe all is not lost, we need everyone to support the team because it is still possible,” Aluko enthused.
“I hope to give my best if I’m chosen for the game. I’ll do my best just like every other player to make sure we beat Sudan on Wednesday and get good results in subsequent matches. “I’m optimistic we can beat Sudan and get back on track.
