Super Eagles Captain, Joseph Tambarin Yobo, says he is happy at renewing the rivalry between himself and Mali captain, Seydou Keita, which dates back to the years when both of them featured for their countries at the U20 level

This time, the Super Eagles must win their confrontation with the Walya Antelopes of Ethiopia in Rustenburg on Tuesday to be assured of a place in the tournament quarter finals. The clash between holders Zambia and Burkina Faso, which will determine the other qualifier from Group C, takes place simultaneously, in Nelspruit

Addressing the players at the team’s evening training in Rustenberg, South Africa on Sunday evening, Keshi said the team may have been hard done by some calls by officiating officials but they should learn to finish games well and with wide margins before such calls are made

A draw could still get Nigeria into the last eight, provided Burkina Faso’s Etalons overpower the defending champions in the other game of Group C at Mbombela Stadium same day, but Green is averse to such negative thinking and voodoo mathematics
