Fearless Etebo not scared of Egypt

29 March 2016, 17:37

Alexandria - Super Eagles forward Oghenekaro Etebo is not afraid of Egypt ahead a tough 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier clash on Tuesday night in Alexandria.

Etebo scored Nigeria’s goal in the first leg played on Friday in Kaduna until a late Mohamed Salah goal that cancelled out their lead, SuperSport reports.

Nigeria's Super Eagles go head to head with their Egyptian counterparts, the Pharaohs, at the Borg El Arab Stadium in Alexandria, and Etebo is hopeful they can leave the North African nation with the full points.

"Yes we are aware (of Chad's withdrawal and how it affects the group)," Etebo told supersport.com. "We know we have to win in Egypt though it will be a difficult game. Egypt too want to win this match. So it will be a tough game but like I said we want to win."

The attacking striker said he has put aside his performance of last Friday and the focus is on Tuesday's game in Alexandria.

"It was good to score in the last game, but that is in the past. Now the concentration is on the next game which is very important. I just want to help the team win," he said to supersport.com.

Etebo, who was named 2015 Africa Most Promising Talent, has scored once in the ongoing Afcon qualification.
