Captain of the Kenyan national, Dennis Oliech, has expressed his confidence that the Harambee Stars, can cause an upset when they face Nigeria in a World Cup qualifier on March 23 in Calabar.
The AC Ajaccio player, who arrived this week to join up with his team mates, stated that the current African Champions will be under pressure and they will be underdogs.
“The pressure will be on Nigeria especially having won the Africa Cup of Nations trophy. We will go into the match as underdogs. Everybody will be looking at how Nigeria will perform, this being their first competitive match after 2013 Afcon final,” he told Goal.com
“All we need to do is to prepare well and there is every possibility that we can get a positive result in Nigeria.
“The team is in good shape especially after we beat Libya last month in Tunisia. We just need to maintain the same momentum and spirit. We can shock them.”
Oliech maintained that although the Super Eagles have always beaten them in the past, there is a new spirit in the Kenyan camp and they can leave Nigeria with a good result.
“We are no longer the underdogs we used to be when losing to Nigeria. We have matured with time and grown in confidence,” he observed.
