I’m not afraid of facing Ivory Coast, says Egwuekwe

EgwuekweBy Albert Akota

Ahead of this month international friendlies against Ivory Coast and Sudan, Super Eagles defender Azubuike Egwuekwe has boasted that they are ready to face their African adversaries in just a couple of weeks, despite just having opened camp.

The player who is currently in team’s camp has had a couple of matches ahead of the friendlies, but believes they (Eagles) will be ready for the challenges ahead.

“We will be ready for the games; I don’t think that should be a problem. The players are in high spirits and everything is fine so I don’t think there should be any problems,” he said.

A predominantly home based Super Eagles team will file out against the Elephants of Cote D’ Ivoire and Sudan in January and will be led by Super Eagles assistant coach, Daniel Amokachi.

And Egwuekwe, who has been a mainstay in the regular Super Eagles team over the last three years, says there is nothing to be worried about playing against Sudan and Ivory Coast.

“They are good teams but there is nothing to be worried about. We beat Ivory Coast at the last Cup of Nations and we played Sudan during the last AFCON qualifiers, so we can face them,” he added.
