Super Eagles Captain, Ahmed Musa, said the team was not under pressure ahead of Saturday’s AFCON 2019 qualifying match against Bafana Bafana of South Africa in Johannesburg.

Musa stated this in an interview with newsmen on Wednesday shortly after the team rounded off its four-day training camp at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba.

He said all the players had resolved to put their “all” into the game, match like every other game, adding that the team would face the South Africans with a winning mentality.

“With regards to our game against South Africa, I can tell you that we are well-prepared. It is not going to be a different game. We are taking it like every other game that we have played.

“We are not under any pressure, because we are confident of securing qualification for the 2019 African Cup of Nations.

“As a team, we are united and play for each other. That is the most important thing in football.

“The South Africans don’t scare us; we know them very well, just as they know us too,” Musa said.

One of the three goalkeepers in camp, Daniel Akpeyi, corroborated Musa’s position on the team’s preparation for the Bafana Bafana encounter, saying “as you can see we have just rounded up of training here in Asaba.

“I can tell you that we are prepared. We do not have any problem facing the South Africans.

“As a team, our spirit is high and we are united in the task of securing qualification for AFCON 2019 and as such, the Bafana Bafana cannot stop us. We are prepared to surprise them in Johannesburg.”
