Speaking ahead of the clash, Omeruo who won the 2013 Afcon in South Africa, however, admitted that the tie would be tough for Eagles.

“I know we can win over,” the center back told Brila.net. “I am confident and will boldly declare victory for Nigeria.

“They defeated us at home but we’ve since shown we can win anywhere too.

“This game will be tough no doubt, as the matches between the two countries have always proven to be, but I have no doubt victory is certain for the Eagles.”
