ALEXANDRIA – Super Eagles winger Moses Simon says the team is committed to placating “mad” Nigerian fans with a victory against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in the Round of 16 at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Speaking in an exclusive chat with busybuddiesng.com, Simon said the shock defeat to Madagascar which stopped the Super Eagles from finishing top of their group was bound to make fans of the national team angry just as it did the players.
The Levante forward who scored in the 1-1 draw with Cameroon in Yaoundé the last time both countries faced off during the 2018 FIFA World Cup African qualifying series, said the Super Eagles will go into the encounter against the Indomitable Lions at the Alexandria Stadium with a “winning mentality” and will stop at nothing to come out on top in Saturday’s encounter.
“We all want to win,” Simon told busybuddiesng.com about the encounter with Cameroon. “And we understand the fans, we know they are mad because [of] the game we played against Madagascar. Even we too are mad at ourselves.
“All we just focus on is victory, nothing more because even if the game ends in a draw, there must still be a winner. We need a winning mentality.”
