NIGERIA'S Super Eagles will not only go for victory in today's 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against the Wasps of Rwanda, but the team will seek a convincing win over the Rwandans in the tie billed for the UJ Esuene Stadium, this afternoon.
Since he took over as the team's head coach, Stephen Keshi has been trying to bring in sanity into every department of the game but goal scoring has remained the greatest undoing of the squad he is rebuilding.
This afternoon, Keshi is aiming at changing the tide as far as scoring goals is concerned as he has ordered his boys to fire from all cylinders when they take to the pitch to confront the visitors.
Therefore, whoever gets the nod amongst the strike force, John Utaka, Ikechukwu Uche, Victor Moses, Ahmed Musa, Uche Kalu and Ejike Uzoenyi carries big burden on his shoulders to give Nigerians a wide margin win for the first time in recent time.
"Once we start scoring more than a goal, there would be no stopping this team, mark my words," said Keshi whose team has only scored two goals in the last three competitive matches.
When both sides met in the first leg, they battled to a goalless draw: a result that leaves the Nigerian side with no option other than an outright win. A loss and a score draw would send the Rwandans through to the next round in the race for the Nations Cup ticket.Share
