We are battle ready for Libya, Iheanacho boasts

Ahead of Saturday’s Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Libya in Uyo, Kelechi Iheanacho has declared that morale is high in Gernot Rohr’s squad.
Iheanacho was on the scoresheet last month in the 3-0 mauling of Seychelles and has insisted that the win was a worthwhile exercise for the Super Eagles.

With a tough test against group leaders Libya ahead, the Leicester City forward believes that the Eagles are capable of securing a crucial victory.

“It’s good for confidence. Sometimes you play in games like this and it can be a horrible game when you don’t play well but still win. But we had a good result and a good performance and that’s very encouraging.

“All the things we worked on in training came off and it all went well, so the manager is happy. The lads are more than experienced to go into the next game and do the same.
“Obviously it will be a tougher game but with the players we have and how we’re playing at the minute I think we can do the same.”
