Super Eagles are 100% sure of victory against Ethiopia

The Nigeria Football Association (NFA) said it was confident the Super Eagles have a 100 per cent chance of beating Ethiopia to qualify for the 2014 World Cup finals.

NFA’s Assistant Technical Director, James Peters, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Abuja he was sure the team would be in Brazil in 2014 after overcoming Ethiopia.

Peters was reacting to the draws of the final play-off held on Monday at CAF headquarters in Cairo, Egypt.

At the draws, the Nigerian senior men football side was pitched against the east Africans in the final qualifying round.

The Super Eagles will visit Ethiopia for the first leg between Oct. 11 and Oct. 15, while they will be hosting the Black Lions between Nov. 15 and Nov. 19

“We have a 100 per cent chance of advancing and qualifying, because in Africa today no team can overcome or subdue us. It may be in another five years to come, but certainly not now.

“But between now and five years, there is no African country that can bring us down,’’ Peters said.

The former Super Falcons’ handler said he was confident the Ethiopians would not be a match to the Super Eagles, even though there are no longer minnows in football.
