–Predicts Bosnia Will Fall
The Super Eagles have arrived Cuiaba just as Ogenyi Onazi dared his Lazio teammate Senad Lulic, who will come face-to-face with him as Nigeria battle Bosnia in a decisive World Cup match today.
Speaking on arrival in Cuiaba on Thursday, Eagles midfielder Onazi said he cannot wait for the game to start to show how important the game is to him.
“One of the players of the Bosnian side is my teammate at Lazio, he plays from the left side of the attack (Lulic, jersey No17) and I want to prove to him that I am a great player at the world stage,” he said with coach Stephen Keshi beaming with smiles.
The Eagles arrived Cuiaba, in Central Brazil, venue of their next group encounter against Bosnia Herzegovina on Thursday afternoon, for the game scheduled for this evening in the city.
The team, who left the Campinas Airport at about 12:15 local time, arrived Cuiaba at exactly 1:10 pm after a one hour and 45 minutes flight. Cuiaba operates a different time zone from Sao Paulo, which is an hour ahead.
The city was warm at the arrival of the team, with temperatures standing at 33 degrees celcius. Pockets of soccer loving Brazilians dotted the route and the front of the hotel to welcome the African champions.
