Nigeria: We’re not under pressure to beat Ethiopia – Nsofor

Super Eagles fringe player, Victor Obinna Nsofor  has stated that that the team will not be under any pressure to beat Ethiopia when they meet in the second leg of the World Cup qualifier in Calabar on November 16.

The Eagles confirmed their class over Ethiopia with a 2-1 win in Addis Ababa last Sunday to put one leg in the 2014 World Cup.

Couple with the fact that the Eagles have not lost any match in their qualification campaign home and away and also that Calabar has become like a fortress, it will be a difficult task for the Ethiopians.

“We are not under any pressure after our win in Ethiopia. They will be the ones under pressure. We will play good football and score loads of goals to qualify for the World Cup,” the Lokomotiv Moscow forward said.

Obinna said he was happy with his performance after coming off the substitutes’ bench in the first leg, although he admits there is always room for improvement.

He added: “The altitude (in Ethiopia) affected most of us and we waited for them in the first half to give us what they have.

“It was a difficult game for us all, but we fought as a team to get the needed result.

“I was introduced to stabilise the midfield and I did it to the best of my ability but sincerely my best is yet to come for the Super Eagles.

“One thing I can say for now is that I will continue to give my all for this team to ensure that we make our country proud, for sure.
