"Pressure is On Nigeria, the Champions" - Wanyama

"Pressure is On Nigeria, the Champions" - Wanyama

Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama says that the African champions will be under pressure when they host Harambee Stars in a 2014 World Cup qualifier his weekend.

Wanyama who linked up with the team and trained during Tuesday morning session despite speculation that he was injured, claimed that they have a chance of upsetting Nigeria.

"It will be a harsh match, it always is when you play away. We are a good team and will do our best."

"The pressure is on Nigeria, they are the champions. We come into this match as the underdogs and football nowadays doesn't recognize that, anything can happen and we can beat them."

He also commented on Kenya's poor record to their opponents that has seen them losing all their matches when the two meet.

"We have never beaten them but we have a young side that can get a result out of them. The coach has had time to prepare and I enjoyed my first day working with him, we'll learn a lot from him."

On the absence of his teammate Efe Ambrose, he was disappointed on missing out the chance to face him on an Internal fixture.

"It could have been good for him to be there and for me to get a chance to play against him on International level."
