Super Eagles and Sunshine Stars of Akure defender Kunle Odunlami has said that the reigning African champions will defend their title at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco. Odunlami said there are chances of the Eagles making it to Morocco as they are determined to win the remaining four matches in group A where Congo Brazzaville are holding the ace with 6 points.
“I’m certain we’ll qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations coming up in Morocco next January. “I don’t think there is any reason for panic or anyone to lose sleep over the possibility of us making it to Morocco. We did our best in Cape Town against South Africa to amass the maximum three points but we ended up with a point,” he said.
He said the fact that the South Africans will also come to Nigeria will give the Eagles an edge while adding that their match in Congo will be approach with all seriousness. “Of course South Africa are coming here and that’s a certain three points in the kitty for us. We’ll visit Congo and deal ruthlessly with them to fetch us another three points and we’re positive to earn six points at the expense of Sudan. That in all adds up to 12 points including the point in our kitty that takes us to a maximum of 13 and I’m quite sure 13 points will give us one of the group’s tickets to Morocco,” he added.
