The Eagles wasted a four-objective lead to draw 4-4 against the Leone Stars in Friday’s Group L 2021 AFCON qualifier in Benin City.

Notwithstanding the draw, the Eagles actually top the gathering on seven focuses while Sierra Leone are third on two focuses.

“Are we beating Sierra Leone, 100 per cent, by the special grace of God,” the 1994 AFCON winner said in his programme ‘Bull’s Pit’ on Brila FM on Monday.

“Are we coming back with the three points, we are coming back with the three points.

“I know being a Nigerian, I am a Nigerian, my blood is Nigerian, my blood is green white green. If we go to Sierra Leone and don’t come back with the three  points then those players are not Nigerians. Because as a Nigerian you know how it is when there are pressure, when there are stakes that’s when we shine.

“I’ve been on the field, I’ve been on the bench and seen panic and we still go away and come back with the three points because that’s what we are, that’s how God made us to be.

“So, are they coming back with the three points I don’t have a doubt that we would come back with the three points. It’s only when the technical bench doesn’t do what they need to do. 

“But with the quality and calibre, the state of mind of the players, we should come back with the three points.”
