Nigeria forward, Obinna Nsofor has warned the Super Eagles to brace themselves for a tough match in Sunday’s 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Addis Ababa.
The 24-year-old Inter Milan striker explained that the East Africans know what to expect from the Super Eagles when both sides clash on June 5.
Nsofor, who has been on loan for the past two seasons at Malaga and West Ham, added that he and his teammates have conditioned themselves to win against the Walya Antelopes in Addis Ababa on Sunday.
“It is a game we must win because we know that it is important,” he said.
Nsofor said the Super Eagles are focused on the Ethiopian game after dispatching Argentina 4 – 1 in an international friendly mid-week in Abuja.
