The yet-to-be capped winger believes that the Super Eagles have too much to be held back by the Lone StarsSuper Eagles hopeful Nnamdi Oduamadi has revealed to Goal.comthat Nigerian football fans do not have anything to fear against the Liberian national football team when the two sides clash in September and October for a slot in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations Cup (Afcon) tournament to be held in South Africa.
Oduamadi, who was called up by the Super Eagles coaches for the Afcon and Fifa World Cup qualifiers in June could not make his debut for the national team because of a hip injury that he sustained in training.
And now that he is now back to almost full fitness, he believes he will be part of the team that will get Nigeria the Afcon ticket.
"I've played against Liberia during the preliminary qualifiers for the All African games and we were too strong for them so I don't see them stopping us," Oduamadi said.
“We just have to be confident in our abilities to get past any team, not only Liberia.
"I believe we have more experience and talent to overwhelm them though that does not mean we will underrate them in any way," Oduamadi added.
Oduamadi played against the Liberian national U-23 side during the 2012 Olympic qualifying games and the Austin Eguavoen-led side won 6-1 on aggregateThe Torino winger is also predicting a similar margin win when the two sides confront each other in September with the stakes perceptibly higher than when the two teams last met in a friendly match in Monrovia in March. The match was won by two Austin Eze goals in the second half of that encounter.
“Though football is played over 90 minutes, I believe that the new Super Eagles under Coach Keshi can win very well against Liberia,” Oduamadi concluded.
