Onazi wants easy route to AFCON

Eagles captain, Ogenyi Onazi would not mind an easy route to the next Africa Cup Nations.

Onazi says a win over South Africa on Sunday would help make the qualification race easy for them.

The South Africans stopped us from going to the AFCON in 2015 and as professionals we have put that game behind us.

We want to respect them because they are also professionals and are a very good team. Our objective is to win this game and make sure it gets easier to qualify for the AFCON,” Onazi said.

He however warned that Nigerians should change their mentality about South Africa and come out to support the team on Saturday.

We want Nigerians to know it won’t be easy. Every one says ‘South Africa are our wives’ but it is not like that. We need the support of the fans and we will give Nigerians victory on Saturday.”

Onazi believes the Super Eagles are getting better as a team and owes it all to the coaches.

The team is getting better and we owe it to the coaching we receive. The camp in Corsica was set up for this purpose and even those of us who were not there heard about how it went and we are happy with what is going on.”

Ogenyi Onazi who plays his football in Turkey is captain for the day in the absence of John Mikel Obi.
