Ex international, Moses Kpakor has charged the Super Eagles Technical crew to work tirelessly to ensure that the team picks the three points against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon. Super eagles Nigeria are top of Group B of their 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign with six points after beating Zambia 2-1 and Algeria 3-1.
However, the senior national team faces an uphill task against the current African champions, Cameroon on August 30 at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo before the reverse fixture four days later in Yaounde.
Kpakor believes that the Super Eagles have no choice but to overcome their Cameroonian counter-parts in a bid to brighten their chances of picking the automatic slot for the World Cup. “We have to beat Cameroon because the two games are a huge step towards our qualification for the World Cup.
“Yes, we can qualify and so far we stand the best chance in our group with six points, four points ahead of our nearest opponents. The coach should ensure we have our very best players in the next games wherever they are.”
“We all need to assure the players that they can qualify us for the World Cup and we have confidence in them because I believe that will help them a lot.”
