–Israel based star insists Eagles will shock Bafana Bafana
By Sab Osuji:
Ashdod of Israel and Nigeria left-back, Juwon Oshaniwa has urged Nigerians to strengthen their faith in the Super Eagles saying they have what it takes to shock the Bafana Bafana of South Africa today and bounce back into the 2015 AFCON qualification reckoning.
“We lost to Congo on our backyard which is very painful for us but I believe it’s not enough for anyone to write us off in the 2015 AFCON qualifiers”, the former Sharks defender said.
“We’ve learned our lessons, a bitter one for that matter so it’s down to us to respond and that we have resolved to do in South Africa.”
Oshaniwa stressed the game at Cape Town stadium will not be a walk in the park but emphasized they will give it their 100%.
“Cape Town Stadium is not strange to us, we’ve played there several times over. The atmosphere there is fantastic and we know the South Africans will come out hard on us having won their game with Sudan.
“We’ll see how it goes but I want to assure Nigerians we’ll fight hard to ensure victory, we’ve won there before and we are prepared to win again because only victory on Wednesday can renew our confidence of playing in the 2015 Nations Cup in Morocco”, Juwon concluded.
