Super Eagles co-ordinator Emmanuel Attah has reacted to a recent statement credited to Ghana midfielder Andre Ayew that Liberia will stop Nigeria from next year’s African Nations Cup.
Attah insists that the Eagles will qualify for the Nations Cup by beating Liberia because the Lone Star are no match for the Nigerians.
He wondered what business Ayew has with Nigeria’s qualification when Ghana are not even sure of scaling through despite a 2-0 first leg advantage over Malawi.
“Ayew should think of how Ghana will be able to overcome Malawi in Blantyre and leave the Eagles alone,” Attah said.
“It is their loss to Liberia that gave him the impression that Liberia will beat us in Nigeria.
“I pray Ghana qualify for the Nations Cup and we meet them there so that we silence them for once.
“We drew 2-2 with Liberia and we sure have what it takes to beat them in Calabar, so we are not losing sleep over the lone Star.
“The coaches have taken note of whatever flaws the Eagles had in Monrovia and will try to correct them before the return leg and win very well,” Attah stated.
He said the Eagles camp will open early next month with the home-based players before the foreign-based players join four days to the October 13 date.
