Eagles Are Well Motivated To Beat Libya


By Johnny Edward in Uyo:
Galatasaray forward, Henry Onyekuru, says the dream of representing Nigeria at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon is the biggest motivation the Super Eagles have to beat Libya in Saturday’s clash at the Akwa Ibom international stadium Uyo, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

Onyekuru, a big prospect for Nigeria prior to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, was left out of the Super Eagles squad to the mundial after he failed to recover on time from a leg injury that kept him out of action for five months.

But having been recalled to the team, the 20 year old wants to keep his place in the team.

“So happy to be in the team for the game against Libya. We are self motivated because a large number of us haven’t been to the Nations Cup before,” Onyekuru told CSN in Uyo.

“Winning these two games against Libya will give us a a good advantage of qualifying for the tournament.”
