Cape Town - Super Eagles midfielder, Ejike Uzoenyi says the
team will compensate Nigerians with a victory over Zimbabwe to finish third at
the 2014 African Nations Championship.
Nigeria lost 4-1 to Ghana via penalties in the semi-final to
set up a third place battle against Zimbabwe.
Uzoenyi, who almost passed out after a colliding with Black
Stars defender, Kwabena Adusei, said he was still sad that the Eagles lost the
match after his near fatal accident, but promised that he will be ready for the
third place match against the Warriors of Zimbabwe.
“It’s the only thing we have to leave here with and we are
determined to compensate Nigerians with a third place finish”, he said.
The game between Nigeria and Zimbabwe kicks off by 4pm
Nigerian time, and will be followed by the final match between Ghana and Libya.
