The captain of the Nigerian Rugby Football team, Azeez Ladipo, has disclosed that the confidence of the Nigerian players in the South African camp is high ahead of the Olympics qualifiers in Pool B this weekend.
It is no longer new that Nigeria are in the same group with the likes of Zambia, Zimbabwe and Uganda, and the Cowrie RFC player has insisted that Kenya and Zimbabwe are the favourites of the championship, adding that they will put up their best to make Nigeria proud.
The Nigerian Rugby delegates will play their first game against Zimbabwe, before clashing against Uganda and Zambia to round up the day.
“Good we’re coping with breathing now.”
“Good we’re coping with breathing now. The altitude is really high here.”
“Confidence is high. We’re looking forward to it.”
“First of all, we are not favourites. Kenya and Zimbabwe are top favourites of the Tournament. So every game will be tough. At the moment, we are preparing for the entire today Tournament, not just one team. We will play Zimbabwe first on Saturday, then we play Uganda and Zambia to round up the day. The finals will be played on Sunday. We just want to concentrate on the next game and hopefully we’ll put up a good performance.”
