Volyn FC winger Michael Babatunde says he is optimistic the Super Eagles players will defeat Congo and South Africa to brighten their chances of qualifying for the 2015 African Nations Cup.
Babatunde who was one of the stand out players at the Mundial also urged Calabar’s esteemed fans to back the team all the way.
“There is no way they can get the better of the Super Eagles.” he boasted.
“The players know what is at stake and cannot afford to let this chance slip by. The fact that I’m not in the squad, I’d be cheering them up from here (Ukraine).
“I am not underrating the Congo. But we certainly have a better team in all departments of the game.
“I am in touch with majority of the players and they have assured that there will be no mistakes on Saturday,” the former Heartland attacker revealed to Complete Sports.
