Eagles
captain, Ogenyi Onazi would not mind an easy route to the next Africa
Cup Nations.

Onazi
says a win over South Africa on Sunday would help make the
qualification race easy for them.

The
South Africans stopped us from going to the AFCON in 2015 and as
professionals we have put that game behind us.

We
want to respect them because they are also professionals and are a
very good team. Our objective is to win this game and make sure it
gets easier to qualify for the AFCON,” Onazi said.

He
however warned that Nigerians should change their mentality about
South Africa and come out to support the team on Saturday.

We
want Nigerians to know it won’t be easy. Every one says ‘South
Africa are our wives’ but it is not like that. We need the support
of the fans and we will give Nigerians victory on Saturday.”

Onazi
believes the Super Eagles are getting better as a team and owes it
all to the coaches.

The
team is getting better and we owe it to the coaching we receive. The
camp in Corsica was set up for this purpose and even those of us who
were not there heard about how it went and we are happy with what is
going on.”

Ogenyi
Onazi who plays his football in Turkey is captain for the day in the
absence of John Mikel Obi.
