Samuel Chukwueze, a winger for the Super Eagles, has indicated that his team respects Sao Tome and Principe but is still hoping to win big.
In the corresponding match, played in June of 2022, Nigeria came out on top 10-0.
The oddsmakers at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo have Jose Peseiro’s squad as heavy favorites to win on Sunday.
And Chukwueze wants the Eagles to finish strong in their quest to qualify for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.
When we last played them, we won by a score of 10-0, therefore it would be wonderful to improve on that score this time around.
In football, though, it’s important to respect your opponent. They won’t want a repeat of the result from the first leg, so we can expect a tough struggle.
Having satisfied fans is a top priority for us. They’re expecting a big win, and we can’t give it to them,” Chukwueze said to Complete Sports.
