" I am happy at the recovery pace of Kenneth and I want to stay positive that he would be in good health ahead of our November game in Calabar ... He called me when we returned from Addis Ababa and he has started light training, so I am hoping that he would be fully fit before the game next month because we need all of our players to be in good health and support the team. "
" Ethiopia are a very good side. They played good football at the last Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa but our aim as professional football players is to go get a result from Addis Ababa. We will be going for a victory but in worse case a draw and hopefully finish the job in Nigeria "
