Super Eagles goalkeeper, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, says he is 100 percent ready for the 2018 World Cup qualifying clash against the Desert Foxes of Algeria.
“I’m ready to comfortably step into the shoes of Carl Ikeme in the World Cup clash against Algeria and I’m ready to prove my worth if called upon or given the go ahead by manager Gernot Rohr to man the post against the North Africans,” Ezenwa said yesterday.
The Eagles will confront the North Africans in the group’s matchday 2 clash on November 12, at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.
Ezenwa said that in the absence of first choice goalkeeper Carl Ikeme, he has acquired all it takes to provide 100 percent cover for his side in the difficult clash.
“I have stepped up training immediately after our heroic performance in Ndola against the Zambians, preparing for the Algerian clash.
“My personal trainer has done an excellent work putting me through rigorous exercises that will stand me out in the encounter.
“I strongly believe I will not fail the test or disappoint once asked to be in between the sticks.
“This is nothing personal as each of the other goalkeepers, Daniel Akpeyi and Dele Alampasu, will equally do an excellent job too.
“Eagles will be good to go against the Algerians given the quality of players invited for the important clash.
“Algerians are certain to prove difficult following the draw against the Cameroonians but we know what we want and will not compromise on the three points at stake.
