Stoke City midfielder  Oghenekaro Etebo has told SCORENigeria he remains upbeat the Super Eagles will make it two straight wins against Libya in an 2019 AFCON Group E qualifier in Sfax, Tunisia, Tuesday night. 

Super Eagles go into Tuesday’s clash in Sfax with a commanding 4-0 advantage after Saturday’s match day three clash in Uyo.

“It’s good we go into Tuesday’s return leg match in Tunisia with victory after the game on Saturday”, Etebo opened up to Scorenigeria.com.ng

“The confidence is there and I believe we can finish the job in Tunisia”.

He insisted the team has all it takes to overhaul South Africa from the summit of the Group E standings.

“Everybody is working hard to make Nigerians happy by playing in the Nations Cup next year,” he told SCORENigeria

“We have not been there for some time now and it is our collective desire to work hard and ensure we qualified.

“It won’t be easy (against Libya) on Tuesday, but we won’t relax because we won 4-0 in Uyo.

“With focus and determination as well as the support of all Nigerians,  we will get the job done and everyone will be happy”.

The Super Eagles contingent departed for Tunisia,  Monday morning for the crucial game slated for 7pm, Nigerian time on Tuesday.
