The Nigeria Football Federation
declared on Wednesday that the
Super Eagles will pull no punches
when hostilities begin against the
Lone Star of Liberia in a 2013
African Cup of Nations decider in
Calabar next week.
Saturday’s duel in Canaan City
qualifies as Nigeria’s most
important football match of the
past two years, but the NFF
says the Eagles have the
capacity to take the game by
the scruff and turn back the
visitors with plenty of goals.
“The match in Calabar is a huge
one, very important one, and we
are treating it as such,” said
High Chief Emeka Inyama,
Chairman of the NFF Media and
Publicity Committee.
“It doesn’t get bigger than
what we have on our hands. But
the NFF has no fear at all. The
Super Eagles will work very hard
and deal decisively with the
Liberians.
“The NFF is providing and will
continue to provide everything
that the team needs to emerge
victorious on the day. The Super
Eagles will take no prisoners.
“In history, Liberia has never
come to Nigeria to beat us, at
any level. It will not happen on
13th October.”
A total of 23 home-based
players have been training in
Abuja for the encounter, to be
joined by 15 foreign-based stars
on Sunday as the squad heads
to Calabar.
The first international match
between Nigeria and Liberia was
played in Monrovia on 8th
October, 1963. The friendly
match ended 2-2, with Albert
Onyeawuna scoring both Nigerian
goals.
Since then, there have been 13
encounters between both
countries at senior level, with
Nigeria winning nine of those,
Liberia winning two and two
drawn.
In a World Cup qualifying match in
Lagos on 20th October 1984, the
Eagles spanked the Lone Star
3-0 with a double from
Humphrey Edobor and one from
Ademola Adeshina.
In an Olympic Games qualifying
match in Monrovia on 28th June
1987, Liberia defeated Nigeria
2-1, but was crushed 4-1 in the
return leg in Lagos. Liberia also
won a 2002 World Cup qualifying
match in Monrovia 2-1 on 9th
July 2000, only for the Eagles to
thrash their visitors 2-0 in the
return in Port Harcourt on 5th
May 2001.
That win paved the way to
Nigeria’s qualification for the
2002 FIFA World Cup finals, as the
Eagles went ahead to defeat
Sudan in Khartoum and also
spanked Ghana in Port Harcourt
on the final day of the qualifiers.
The first leg of this final
qualifying fixture ended 2-2 in
Monrovia on 8th September, but
Inyama says nothing will stop a
deluge of goals raining in the
Liberian net from supercharged
Super Eagles’ strikers in
Calabar next weekend.
“It is a battle the NFF and the
Super Eagles are working
assiduously hard towards
conquering on all fronts. The only
possible outcome is victory for
Nigeria,” he said.
