Super Eagles left-back, Elderson Echiejile, has said the team will cope with playing on an artificial turf in Saturday’s game with Sudan in Khartoum.

The Sudanese football federation moved the match from Omdurman – where they lost to South Africa – to the capital city hoping to win on an artificial pitch. The Monaco ace, though, said the team will adjust to the condition.

“Personally, I prefer playing on a natural grass pitch, but we just have to adjust, be smarter and work on our timing when we play on astro turf and we will be okay,” Echiejile told his official website www.elderson3.com.

“And as for the weather, we are first and foremost Nigerians and born in Africa and so we should also be able to cope on the day.”

And the player, who missed the last World Cup because of injury, also said the Super Eagles are targeting wins in both games against Sudan.

“We are going for the maximum points against Sudan so as to be better placed in the table especially as the last two qualifying games, against Congo and South Africa will not be easy.

“We are equally aware that Sudan will not just surrender to us because we are Nigeria. They will want a famous win, but we are training hard, team spirit is very high and with the support of other Nigerians, we will be victorious.”
