Efe Ambrose cares about the fans

18 November 2014, 07:35

Lagos - Nigeria defender Efe Ambrose hopes the team can continue to put smiles on the faces of their supporters after edging closer to qualification for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Super Eagles hoisted themselves to second in Group A after seeing off Congo 2-0 in Point Noire on Saturday, leaving themselves in the final qualifying position for next year's continental showpiece.

And while it has been far from smooth sailing for Stephen Keshi's side in the qualifiers, Glasgow Celtic defender Ambrose is hoping they can continue to give their fans the results they so badly crave.

"We are all professionals and we understand how the fans feel because they are there for us but sometimes they are not pleased with what they see, or what has happened. It's not that they don't love you, but just a few seconds of reaction and it's normal with human beings," he told SL10.

"For us it's just to keep working hard and don't really bother about that. We want to put smiles on their faces but sometimes we disappoint them and it brings the ugly side of them and that is part of football, but I believe all that will change very soon."
