Former Nigeria International, Yisa Shofoluwe believes the Super Eagles can beat their Sudanese counterparts at their backyard on Saturday, when both countries clash in the race for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco.
The Super Eagles are third on Group A table with just a point from two games and are trailing behind Congo and South Africa, who have recorded six and four points, respectively.
“Though, it is most times difficult to get any results at the backyard of your enemy, but if the Eagles can give more than hundred percent, I am sure they will not but take the three points in the two encounters.”
Both teams are also yet to get any wins, with Nigeria only able to get a 0-0 draw away at South Africa, after losing 3-2 at home to Sudan while the Sudanese lost their two games to South Africa and Congo respectively.
“They must be focused, the players must acknowledge the fact that we need to be in Morocco, because as it is, our current position on the table is not encouraging in any way, and if they can take this into consideration, Sudan will be like a pray in the Eagles hands on Saturday.”
“Really, we must fight to win against Sudan home and away because another defeat will end our chances of qualifying for the tournament in Morocco.
