Abuja - Former African Footballer of the year Nwankwo Kanu has advised the Super Eagles to remain focused and determined in order to qualify for the 2014 World Cup.
Kanu said in Calabar on Monday that the team should be ready to confront any country drawn to meet them in the final World Cup qualifying match.
He said the Eagles performed well against Malawi, urging them to correct some of the mistakes made during the match.
"They did very well. They executed the game the way the coach wanted them," Kanu said.
"But, like I said, we only have to go and learn from our mistakes from this game and then look forward."
"We don’t have to put all our minds on who we are going to play. All we have to do is to believe," Kanu said.
Kanu, a former Eagles captain, said the Eagles have good players who could take on any team and should work hard to qualify for the final tournament.
The Eagles defeated the Flames of Malawi 2-0 at the U.J. Esuene Stadium in Calabar to qualify for the play-off. Ten teams qualified for the round, out of which only five would win the five African slots.
