Flying Eagles forwardz Emeka Chinonso has declared he is battle ready to lead the team to strike gold at the ongoing African Games in Morocco when they take on fellow West Africans Burkina Faso in Friday’s final, AOIFootball.com reports.
The Brokehouse FC player, who coincidentally turns 18 on Friday, told AOIFootball.com from the team’s base in Morocco, that they are well fired up and will do everything to ensure they come out victorious.
“The whole team is fired up for victory and I believe we have what it takes to deliver the gold for Nigeria.
“It has been a fantastic tournament for me personally and I hope to deliver the gold for the team. Scoring the goal that will give us victory will be my joy as it will also mark a perfect birthday gift,” the forward said.
He further added that the coaches have put the players through a whole lot of intense training and now want his teammates to replicate the performance of the Falconets who also claimed gold on Thursday after defeating Cameroon.
