Super Eagles Of Nigeria To Welcome Desert Foxes Of Algeria In Uyo

Super Eagles goalkeeper, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, says he  is 100% ready for the 2018 world cup qualifying match against Algerian National teams.

Gernot Rohr will lead Nigeria National Team to confront the Desert Foxes of Algeria on November 12, in the group's matchday 2, at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.
Ezenwa said that in the absence of first choice goalkeeper Carl Ikeme, who is nursing an injury that ruled him out of the game between Super Eagles and Desert Foxes, he has acquired all it takes to provide 100 percent cover for Nigeria in the clash.

Ikechukwu Ezenwa told supersport correspondent that "I'm ready to comfortably step into the shoes of Carl Ikeme in the world cup clash against Algeria and I'm ready to prove my worth if called upon or given the go ahead by manager Gernot Rohr to man the post against the  North Africans.

"I have stepped up training immediately after our heroic performance in Ndola against Zambians, preparing for the clash.
"My personal trainer has done an excellent work putting me through rigorous exercises that will stand me out in the encounter.
"I strongly believe I will not fail the test or disappoint once asked to be in between the sticks..

"This is nothing personal as each of the other goalkeepers, Daniel Akpeyi and Dele Alampasu, will equally do an excellent job too.
Eagles will be good to go against the Algerians given the quality of players invited for the important clash.

"Algerians are certain to prove difficult following their draw against the Cameroonians but we know what we want and will not compromise on the three points at stake."

Super Eagle's defense and goalkeeper will face the like of Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez and his club partner and club forward record signing Islam Slimani in the encounter.
