Super Eagles set to repair damages

15 October 2014, 15:11

Abuja - Nigeria goes into Wednesday's game with Sudan knowing fully well that anything short of a win will mean an end to Super Eagles’ defence of the Africa Nations Cup trophy won at the last edition in South Africa, SuperSport reports.

Stephen Keshi, who has been under immense pressure after a spate of bad results has pleaded for support for his team as they go all out in search of their first win in the final phase of the qualifying series for Morocco 2015.

The match day four clash certainly will be a must win for Nigeria, while Sudan, basking in the 1-0 win in the reverse leg in Khartoum last Saturday will come into the encounter buoyed with confidence to earn more points off the Super Eagles.
