Super Eagles defence will tame Lewandowski — Kenneth Omeruo
Kasimpasa of Turkey defender, Kenneth Omeruo is positive the Super Eagles’ defence has what it takes to tame Bayern Munich and Poland striker, Robert Lewandowski when both sides clash in Wroclaw on the 23rd of this month.
The on-loan Chelsea defender, who spoke to AOIFootball.com from his base in Turkey, said he was honoured to be invited to the Eagles’ setup, saying the match against Poland will be a good test for the team.
“First, it’s always an honour to be part of the team again. I am looking forward to the match and want to give my best to make sure we come out tops. Every match we play from now to the World Cup is like a final, because we (the players) have to be in our best form and make sure we represent the country well at the World Cup in Russia,” Omeruo said.
Omeruo stated that facing Lewandowski won’t be a problem for the defence because he would be like other strikers the team has faced in the past.
“I’m well prepared for the game. I am in good shape and it’s important for the team to prepare well. Stopping their danger man (Lewandowski) will not be a problem for us because I am very sure we can contain him. We just have to work as a team and most importantly, follow the manager’s tactics,” Omeruo noted.
Nigeria will face Poland in an International friendly on March 23 in Wroclaw and then travel to London four days later to play Serbia at the Hive Stadium Stadium on March 27.
