Super Eagles eye 12-game unbeaten run

19 June 2015, 12:15

Lagos - Suspended Super Eagles midfielder Eddy Ogenyi Onazi has revealed he and his teammates have vowed to go on a 12-game winning streak between now and when the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations will come to an end.

The SS Lazio of Italy midfielder, who was shown a red card in Nigeria’s 2-0 win over Chad in their opening 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier last weekend says they want to win all the qualifying matches and also win all their games at the tournament proper in Gabon.

“We want to win all our qualifying matches home and away, that six games and then go to the tournament and win all our matches which is another six games and that means we want to win the next Africa Cup of Nations,” he said in a radio interview.

“I believe we can do that by the grace of God because we have a very young team and we’re just coming up and we’re working to get to know each other very well and that is what we are doing.

“We want to make sure we win the next game and do better than what we have done,” he added.

The 22-year old will however miss Nigeria’s next two qualifiers against Tanzania and Egypt after he was banned by CAF following his red card against Chad.
