Tunisia are no threat Yobo


Joseph Yobo is so confident the Super Eagles would go all the way to the final of the 25th Africa Cup of Nations. He believes the defending champions, the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia, can't stop Nigeria when both teams clash in the quarterfinals here at the El Masry Stadium in Port Said tomorrow.

Joseph Yobo is so confident the Super Eagles would go all the way to the final of the 25th Africa Cup of Nations. He believes the defending champions, the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia, can't stop Nigeria when both teams clash in the quarterfinals here at the El Masry Stadium in Port Said tomorrow.

The Everton defender, who admitted that they were gradually understanding themselves since majority of them are playing together for the first time, told Daily Sunsport at Helnan International Hotel, Port Said that their 100 per cent record in the group stage has given them a psychological edge over the title holders.

"We are just starting to understand ourselves but I think conceeding only one goal in three games is not a bad record at all, said the former Olympic Marseille star, who has been the stand in captain for the Eagles since the tournament began two weeks ago, in the absence of Austin Okocha.

He said he was looking forward to an explosive game against the Tunisians tomorrow inspite of his optimism that Eagles would emerge victorious.
"I'm very positive we are going all the way, this is the knockout stages and we cannot afford to lose to the Tunisians. No, not again.

"Both Nigeria and Tunisia are good sides but i think we have quality players, who can rise up to the challenges of turning the game around in our favour"

"We can match the Tunisians strength for strenght.We lost to them on penalties two years ago but it would be a different ball game this time around because we are going to swoop on them like bees," he said.
