Absence Of Key Players Won’t Stop Eagles From Defeating Cape Verde -Amuneke


Former Nigerian midfielder, Emmanuel Amuneke says the Super Eagles have the fire power to conquer Cape Verde at home in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

Nigeria are top of Group C on three points after defeating Lone Stars of Liberia at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos on Friday while Central Africa Republic (CAR) held Cape Verde to a 1-1 draw.

The Super Eagles who will be hoping to maintain their leadership position in the group will battle Cape Verde on Tuesday without some key players.

Recall that players such as Wilfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho, Alex Iwobi, Oghenekaro Etebo, William Troost-Ekong, Joe Aribo and Leon Balogun will the game due to UK covid-19 restriction.

Before now players plying their trade in the UK are sure to miss the game after their countries insisted that players will not be allowed to travel to covid 19 red alert countries in which Cape Verde is one of them.
