“It’s going to be a tough game but I want to say we are ready for the fight. It’s never easy to play against the hosts in a competition like this,” Lookman told DAILY POST in an exclusive chat in Abidjan.

 

 

“It’s a game we can’t afford to lose and will give our best to make our fans happy.

 

“Ivory Coast have a strong squad like us, but we are ready for the battle and will make sure we win the game.”

 

The encounter will kick off at 6:00 pm Nigeria time.
