Mabo, who hailed the Eagles for last Wednesday’s 1-0 win over the Harambee Stars which has moved them closer for the 2014 World Cup ticket, said that their mission is far from being completed, saying they must be focused and avoid complacency in the game against the Brave Warriors.
“Both the technical crew and the players should not be overconfident. They should not think victory is guaranteed.They should not think they have arrived; they’ve not arrived. The mission is not yet accomplished. There are no more minnows in football, so I expect them to put in their best in the game against Namibia,” he said.
However, he remains hopeful that if the African champions play to their full potentials they will outscore the Brave Warriors just as they did to the Harambee Stars of Kenya in Nairobi.
“The victory against the Harambee Stars will serve as a morale booster. And I want to believe that any country that comes across Nigeria will be crushed and Namibia will not be an exception. For sure it’s not going to be an easy game, but I don’t see Namibia stopping the Eagles. I’m sure the Eagles will win in Windhoek,” he said.
The Super Eagles sit top of the Group F table with eight points from four games and are closely followed by the Flames of Malawi with six points, while Namibia and Kenya are third and fourth respectively.
