Efe Ambrose: Liberia versus Eagles match will be tough

The national team defender has said that the match against their West African neighbours will be tough

Efe Ambrose, Super Eagles and newly recruited Celtic of Scotland defender, has warned his colleagues to take the battle against the Lone Star of Liberia very seriously because it would be a very tough match away in Monrovia.

He was however, optimistic of his team’s victory away to Liberia if they could put in their all in the match slated for Saturday.

“It is not going to be easy playing against Liberia on their soil, but I believe with hard work on the part of the team we will sure achieve victory in Monrovia come Saturday,” Ambrose told Goal.com.

“We can’t afford to let Mr. President down not after paying us a personal visit during our training on Wednesday. That alone has fired us up for the battle in Liberia,” Ambrose added.

“Nothing is impossible in football they say. It is all about 90 minutes. So we will try all our best to win in Liberia to make the return leg much easier for us at home.

“Nothing is impossible in football. It is your resolve, zeal, determination and total commitment to the cause that matters. Then the expected result will come”, he assured.

Ambrose joined Celtic of Scotland in the last day of the transfer deadline in Europe, and he described teaming up with Scottish giants as marvellous.

“It was marvellous because I prayed for a change to happen and it happened in a big and good way. I thank God for making it happen.

“The Club President, the coach and most especially the fans received my warmly and I felt like I was at home.

“So I am determined to work hard for the club to pay back the trust they have reposed in me. With God’s backing I believe strongly that I won’t let Celtic’s team, management and fans down.

But the defender has to rush out of Glasgow to make the Eagles’ camp in Abuja.

“I stayed barely 24 hours at Celtic before rushing back to Nigeria to join Eagles camp.

“So I hope to adapt quickly to the weather in Scotland and settle down quickly for business because we have load of work ahead of us,” the former Ashdod FC of Israel added.
