2023 AFCON Qualifier: Super Eagles won’t show Sao Tome and Principe mercy – Olorunleke
Ojo Olorunleke, the Super Eagles' goalkeeper, says his team will give it everything they have got to beat Sao Tome and Principe on Sunday.
When the two teams met in November of last year, Jose Peseiro's team destroyed the True Patriots 10-0.
Although the Super Eagles have already qualified for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, they still need to win this match in order to take first place in Group A.
Sao Tome and Principe have already been eliminated from the running for a spot in the competition.
The Super Eagles will put on another strong performance against the True Patriots, according to Olorunleke.
“It’s true that we have already qualified for the next AFCON, but we still have to go out there and do our job,” the Enyimba shotstopper stated.
“The fans always want us to win, and we can’t afford to disappoint them. We are professionals, so the most important thing is to put on a good show for them.”
