EAGLES 'LL ELECTROCUTE ETHIOPIA -KALU
Nothing to worry about,that is the message from former Abia state governor Dr.Orji Uzor Kalu as Nigeria fight for Brazil 2014 World Cup ticket over Ethiopia shortly.
Exuding optimism,Kalu said,"Eagles are unstoppable at this stage.They will electrocute their opponents because they remind me of the 1977 Mandela Cup winning Enugu Rangers."
He was snappy about his point."Inspite of the so called high altitude,Rangers defeated their Second round opponents Electric Company of Ethiopia 2-0 in Addis on a day Chimezie "Watch me" Ngadi and "Block buster" Aloy Atuegbu shone like a million stars to give the Flying Antelopes a 6-0 aggregate victory."
Rangers went on to win the Cup without losing a match."And that exactly is what the Eagles will do.They will hit Brazil without losing any game in the qualifiers,"the ex-governor explained.
Kalu described the Ethiopians as trespassers."We are talking soccer not long distance race.I shall continue to admire the heroics of marathoners Abebe Bikila ,who won black Africa's first Olympic gold at Roma'60,Mamo Wolde,Miruts Yifter and of course, the generation next.The World Cup is all about football and boots,nothing to do with spikes."
Reminded that Ethiopia won the Africa Nations Cup in 1962,a year before Nigeria's debut,Kalu's reaction was again swift.
"That is history.Then they had Menguistuo Worku.Today,no member of their team could look Mikel Obi straight in the face without bowing.You know Victor Moses.They are scared of the young man.These are the men that will shock them in Addis," Kalu said.
