Fenerbache of Turkey scoring machine, Emmanuel Emenike, has said that the Walya of Ethiopia will come out smoking against the Super Eagles in this weekend’s Brazil 2014 World Cup qualifying play off second leg in Calabar, Cross River State.
The 26-year-old forward believes that the return leg will not be a walkover as the Ethiopians are an ambitious side that will want their country’s flag to be hoisted for the first time at the World Cup.
The erstwhile Spartak Moscow star said: “The game in Calabar will be tougher for us than the one in Addis Ababa.
“We have to be careful and get ready for another big business in Calabar.
“Ethiopia are very good and they will be coming here with more tricks.
“So, we shouldn’t see the first victory as the end of the road.
“I am glad to have played in the Nations Cup and won, but I am dreaming of playing in my first World Cup for Nigeria.
“That will be the first time I will be at the World Cup and to get to play in Brazil where they are crazy about football would be a dream come true.”
The stocky goal banger grabbed a brace against the Antelopes in the first leg, which ended 2-1 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Emenike however declined from stepping into the shoes of late Super Eagles’ striker, Rashidi Yekini, as he said: “Yekini’s shoes are still too big for me to wear.
“I am only trying to do what I know is best for my fatherland and I have not done anything yet.
“I still have a lot to do to get to the heights reached by such a legend.”
