After steering the Super Eagles to a moral-boosting 2-1 win over the Walya Antelopes in Addis Ababa on October 13, Coach Stephen Keshi has predicted that the Ethiopians will be beaten again in the second leg holding November 16 in Calabar.
The African champions have one foot in the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals in Brazil, courtesy of two strikes by Fenerbahce striker, Emmanuel Emenike and speaking yesterday, Keshi said he was relieved that his team achieved their target in Addis Ababa.
“It was a good thing that we got the victory, which we so much wanted in Addis Ababa. The boys played well and I thank God that their labour did not go in vain.
It was a sweet victory for us and I thank the team for making this dream a reality”, said Keshi, who added that efforts were now on to ensure that the Eagles complete the job of beating Ethiopia in the reverse fixture on November 16, and with it book their ticket to Brazil 2014.
“Now that we have beaten them in their backyard, we have to ensure that we make it a double victory by defeating them in Calabar. With the way we are progressing, I believe that Ethiopia will again and our qualification to the World Cup would be guaranteed”, said the former Mali and Togo manager.
