Onazi, Etebo React to Eagles Home Win over Algeria


Nigeria stars Ogenyi Onazi and Oghenekaro Etebo have expressed happiness with the Super Eagles 3-1 home win over Algeria in Uyo.

Onazi insisted that the team are not preoccupied with leadership of their group as they hope to keep winning until they have landed in Russia. “We want to keep winning our games until we have qualified for the World Cup,” maintained the Turkey-based midfielder.

Feirense of Portugal ace Etebo dedicated the big home win to the fans. “It was a good game and we thank God for the victory,” said the former Warri Wolves star. “This is to all the fans.”

Rio Olympics hero Etebo has now racked up a handful of full international caps and he said he has justified his recall to the country’s team. “I believe I grabbed my opportunity in the national team today,” he said.
