Nigeria just needs a draw to seal a place in the final playoff round as they already have 12 points, which is two more than the Cape Verde’s. Conversely, the Blue Sharks must win the match to be able to advance as the group winner. And
They are determined to beat the Super Eagles and keep their dream of making their first appearance at the FIFA World Cup alive.
The Blue Sharks arrived Nigeria in a good mood having won their last three games, and are ambitious of bagging similar result against the Super Eagles in Lagos. And captain Marco Soares promised that they will give their all to earn the result that would make their country proud.
“We know that we have to go to Nigeria to win the game, as we do in every game and it won’t be any different there,” the FC Arouca of Portugal midfielder said as reported by Soccernet.com.
He added: “We will do everything from the first minutes to make Cape Verdeans proud of their team.”
Having a good World Cup qualifying record with just one loss on home soil in four decades, the Super Eagles coach Genot Rohr knows there is no room for errors. In his quest to ensuring that the Eagles put up a commanding showing against the Blue Sharks, Rohr is likely to stick with the majority of the players that featured in the 2-0 win against Liberia in Tangier, Morocco.
