Super Eagles will triumph – Taribo West

18 September 2013, 13:50

Abuja - Ex-international Taribo West said on Wednesday that the Super Eagles would qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup when they meet the Walya Antelopes of Ethiopia in the final playoff for the 2014 World Cup.

The former Julius Berger of Lagos player said in Lagos that the Super Eagles had an edge considering the sustained progress in the team’s rebuilding process.

"The Super Eagles only need to be careful during the match.

"It’s not going to be a walkover, but we will qualify.

"The Ethiopia team I saw at the Nations Cup looked like young boys that are hungry for football.

"It is not going to be a wide margin win, but we will certainly carry the day.

"The Antelopes of Ethiopia are building up very strongly but the Eagles will qualify because we have a lot of experience on our side,’’ West added.

The Super Eagles will lock horns with the Walya Antelopes of Ethiopia in the final playoffs for the 2014 World Cup.

The first leg of the match will hold in Ethiopia on October 11, while the second leg will be played in Nigeria on November 15, at a yet to be determined venue.
