He said that with the enormous support from the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) the team would perform well.
“We have never had it so good, in terms of support and encouragement, the President and Vice President of the federation have done well. They have been with us during training.
“As we speak, our tickets and our hotel reservations have been made,
something that has never happened.
“Usually when it is a week from the tournament we will start running around.
“But as it is, our players are mentally and psychologically ready, we intend to make it to the final, so we can qualify for the World cup,’’ Ejo said.
Eight countries from the confederations, namely Egypt, Morocco, Madagascar,
Senegal, Ghana, Ivory Coast Seychelles and Nigeria had qualified for the final tournament.
