Dream Team striker speaks ahead of Senegal clash

07 December 2015, 16:12

Dakar - Nigeria U23 striker Oghenekaro Etebo says they are not scared of facing hosts Senegal when both countries meet on Wednesday in a 2015 CAF U23 Africa Cup of Nations semi-final game.

The Dream Team VI, as the Nigerian U23’s are called, finished second in group B, with four points behind Algeria and faces the hosts at the Dakar National Stadium in Dakar.

Speaking ahead of the clash against the Young Tarenga Lions, Etebo admits it will be tough playing the host country, but maintains that they will see to it that they get the ticket to Rio 2016.

“They are the host team and they will be tough but that doesn’t mean we cannot win,” said Etebor.

“We want to win the game so we can qualify for the Olympic Games and we know it will be a good game but they also know Nigeria will be tough for them,” he added.

A win for Nigeria over their Senegalese counterparts will see them book their place at next year’s Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, while a loss means they must win the third place match to be sure of a place at the Olympics.
