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,
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.For
