Super Eagles goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama and midfielder Ogenzi Onazi have assured Nigerian soccer fans that the country will qualify for the next Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) despite the unconvincing start in the qualifiers.

The Eagles are in a precarious position after picking one point in two games against Congo and South Africa, but the duo wants Nigerians not to press the panic button, insisting that the team will be in Morocco in January 2015 to defend their title.

“Yes, we are on a tight rope with just one point from a possible six but I want to assure all Nigerians that we have resolved as a team to make sure we go to Morocco to defend our trophy,” Enyeama told Sports Vanguard.

“The game against Sudan this weekend will be a tough one because they are playing at home. Secondly, after losing to South Africa, they will not like to lose again at home, but the record favours us and we will beat them again even in front of their home fans.”

On his part, the Lazio midfielder said there was no cause for alarm.

“We don’t need any panic,” he said.

“We just know that we don’t want to see that the points are three or one. We just know what is at stake and we know what is expected of us. That is why we are training hard to make sure we come out victorious in the games ahead.”
