Nigeria’s Olympic team captain, Azubuike Okechukwu is optimistic they will overturn their 2-0 first leg deficit suffered away to Libya in last week’s U-23 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers reports Completesports.com.
Azubuike admitted in a chat with the media in Asaba that his side must create more chances in the final third to stand a chance of advancing to the group stages of the African U-23 Cup of Nations to hold in Egypt from 8th – 22nd of November this year.
Despite dominating the first leg, Nigeria’s Olympic team failed to create a goalscoring chance throughout the game according to reports.
“It was a disappointing performance from us but we will be stronger and better when we play the next match,” Azubuike told reporters in Asaba.
“We have to play better and create more chances in the final third. We don’t want to disappoint our fans and hopefully, we will deliver at home.”
Azubuike is currently on a six months loan at Rizespor from Pyramid FC in Egypt.
