Enyeama: Eagles won't be under pressure against Chad

07 June 2015, 08:27Soccer Laduma

Lagos - Super Eagles captain Vincent Enyeama has posited that they won't be playing under pressure when they face Chad's Le Sao next Saturday in a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

The Super Eagles started the qualifying series for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations with a home loss to Congo, but Enyeama says they won't be distracted by that when the qualifiers start.

"I'm not thinking of what happened last year because it is gone now," Enyeama told News24 Nigeria.

"Ivory Coast have won that Africa Cup of Nations so we can't be thinking of that now and if we're not thinking of that, there's no way we'll be playing under pressure.

"We don't have to play under pressure because there's no need for that and I can tell you that we won't be playing under any pressure," he said.

The 32-year old will skipper Nigeria when they file out at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium on June 13, and says he and his teammates will be ready for the Chadians.

"We will be ready for them. We have been training hard and the boys are very much in shape.

"It's going to be a very tough game but we will be ready," he posited.
