How are you preparing for the match against Lone Star considering reports that the pitch in Monrovia is not the best for such a match?
Okay, we all looking forward to it. We have been training hard this season. Come Saturday we should be able to record a win. We shouldn’t really worry about the pitch. We are looking forward to it though.
What should Nigerians expect from you?
To be honest with you it is not all about me. It is eleven players on the pitch. I am not the only player on the pitch. We need to play as a team. Eleven players on the pitch and that’s it. We are working hard and if we continue to work with this commitment, I don’t see anything stopping us from winning on Saturday.

To be honest with you, if I play a game, I wanna score. If the opportunity comes, I will score but to sit down and say I will score, I find it hard to say such.
Are you under any pressure anytime you turn out for the Super Eagles?
I don’t think so. I played a lot of Games and I don’t see anything about pressure like that as long as I am on the pitch. I normally work hard and stuffs. I just keep working hard as I always do. We all need every player on the pitch to do the work for us on Saturday.
