SD Huesca midfielder Kelechi Nwakali has assured Nigerians that the U23 team will qualify for the 2020 Olympics.
Nigeria takes a 1-0 first leg defeat to Tuesday's AFCON U23 qualifiers return leg against Sudan on Tuesday.
Nwakali missed the first leg in Omdurman where Nigeria lost 1-0.
“We have to work hard, because we lost the first game it doesn’t mean we can’t loose tomorrow. We just have to respect the opponent, but also not be afraid of them, but to take the game to them.
“Every minute any opportunity counts in a game like this magnitude; from the blast of the whistle, but I want to assure Nigerians that, we will qualify for the Olympic come tomorrow,” Nwakali said.
Top two finishers at the AFCON U23 tournament in Egypt, will represent Africa at the 2020 Olympics.
