Rabiu Ibrahim okays Kaduna for Eagles

27 June 2015, 14:44Soccer Laduma

Lagos - Super Eagles midfielder Rabiu Ibrahim has backed the Nigeria Football Federation over their choice of the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna, as a venue for the next Nigeria AFCON 2017 home game against Egypt.

There has been wide spread criticism over the choice of Kaduna as a venue for the game with some questioning the security situation in Northern Nigeria and some are also worried the weather won't be favourable for the Nigerian players based abroad.

However the AS Trencin midfielder who made his debut for Nigeria in their 2-0 win over Chad at the same venue said criticism over the venue is overboard, as they are only focused on doing well regardless of where the game is played in Nigeria.

"Our aim is to win and win well regardless of where the game is played in Kaduna, personally I know that some of my teammates are very happy that we are returning to Kaduna to play, myself included" He told News24.

On expectations ahead of the game the 24 year old said their focus is on their next game against Tanzania, before they think about their game against fellow group leaders Egypt.

'One game at a time, after the Tanzania game we can switch focus to Egypt but, for now Tanzania is our most important task especially because we will be playing away from home".
