Former Enugu Rangers’ striker Daniel Etor feels that the Super Eagles will fly past Benin Republic in Thursday’s Wafu Cup of Nations' semi-final clash.

Nigeria defeated Ghana 2-0 to pick a ticket for the last four after their first two draws.

“I know that the players will like to make a name for themselves. They will be eager to play with all they have. The fact that a whole lot depends on their performance in the competition is another motivation for them. The Benin Republic side are a good team but I know that the Eagles are better and they will get the job done,” Etor told Goal.

“It won’t be an easy game because the CHAN qualifier they played some months back was also very competitive and it will still be this time around. Nigerians are the better side and the players too showed against Ghana that they can spring back to life when everyone has written them off.

“I am tipping the Eagles to win again and eventually win the competition. I have moved on due to my movement to Oman and I am hoping to use this as a stepping stone,” he explained.
