Ibenegbu Says Beach Eagles Are Not Afraid Of Any Team

"Argentina should be scared that they are meeting a super power like Nigeria. We don't know Argentina to be a strong force in Beach Soccer. If it is Brazil, we can begin to panic and prepare very well.

"I am not saying that we are not going to prepare for Argentina, but they are not a strong force that can stop us.

"Lebanon is another country that will come for the tournament. They may not be well known, but we are going to serious with them although we don't fear them.

"I am not underrating Argentina and Lebanon, but we are ready to face them and beat them to retain the trophy.

"Nigerians should come out and see an improved Beach Soccer team that is eager to win trophies in every competition," Ibenegbu concluded.

The Sand Eagles arrived Dubai in the early hours of Sunday and are set to perform better than their fifth place finish in the maiden edition in 2011.

The team will take on Brazil in their opening game of the Dubai Beach Soccer Tournament on Tuesday.
