Super Eagles second choice keeper, Austin Ejide believes that the national team will scale through the qualification hurdles for the 2015African Cup of Nations in Morocco following his performance at his Israeli club.
The Super Eagles are walking on a tight rope and they need to win their next two games against Congo Brazzaville and South Africa’s to stand a choice of defending the trophy they won in 2013.
“The good thing is that the players invited to the team are getting regular play time with their various clubs. I’m happy with the progress of the team thus far, even against Sudan.
“I really hope that we’ll see such consistency even from the fans as we prepare for Congo and on our return home to Uyo against South Africa,” Ejide said.
The Eagles will visit Congo on November 15 and three days later face the Bafana Bafana at the newly commissioned Akwa Ibom Stadium. The Eagles are currently on four points, Congo are on seven points, while South Africa leads the group with eight points.
