Yobo, Osaze want intimidating support

Captain Joseph Yobo and striker Osaze Odemwingie have called on Nigerians to make the Abuja National Stadium an intimidating arena for when Guinea come calling on Saturday.

The Super Eagles need a convincing win to spare the fans heartache during the game, even though a 1-0 victory will suffice, and Yobo says the task will be easier of the fans do their part

"We want to appeal to the fans to come out and make the job easier for us," Yobo said. "They have to make the stadium an intimidating place for the Guineans by filling up the stadium at least two hours before the game.

"We don’t want a violent atmosphere, we just want the whole stadium to be a sea of green and white so that when they walk in, they'll know that they are playing not only the players on the field, but the fans too."

Striker Odemwingie echoed his skipper's words

"I think we as players have shown how committed we are to this game by the way everyone has reported to camp just a day after the coach opened camp.

"Even Efe Ambrose, who got married on Saturday, has left his young wife and is here to serve his country.

"We want to appeal to the fans to also do their part by coming out and filling up the stadium at least two hours before the game like the captain has said, to show the Guineans that we mean business.

"This is a collective effort between the players and the and we will all enjoy the Nations Cup together."

The game kicks off at 2pm Nigeria time
