Chukwu, who was also Captain of the defunct Green Eagles was speaking in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Abuja.

According to him, the Eagles have shown impressive performance in the ongoing qualifying matches.

He said that Nigeria had proved their superiority in African football so far with victory over strong teams like Libya.

“We should try to beat South Africa. Although I am confident that we will win them.

“For South Africa to draw with Seychelles means that Nigeria can beat them,” said Chukwu.

The former coach, who also urged the team to maintain its tempo, said that it was time for the Eagles to work harder.

He said he was delighted with the performance of the Eagles over Libya at home and away.

On Oct. 16, the Eagles defeated Libya 3-2 in Tunisia in the second leg match.

The Super Eagles will qualify if they draw against South Africa regardless of what Libya's score ends up being, because we are already at 9 points while Libya is 4 points. Seychelles cannot escape our claws in Uyo.
If SA wins against us they go top of the group with 11 points and we stay at 9 points.
Seychelles are already eliminated because they can never get to 9 points.

But the Super Eagles should beat South Africans in South Africa to regain our bragging rights back!
How dare they beat us in Naija!!  >:(  :))
So, we must beat them there in their own backyard too.  8)
Go boys!

It's not hard to do. Beating SA in their cottage is achievable.

2 things though. The Eagles have to be focused the whole time and Rohr must read the game well to make the right substitutions on time.

I'm just happy we are here, especially after the loss to SA the other day.
