Le Roy

Congo Brazzaville coach, Claude Le Roy has boasted that the Super Eagles will not smell victory when Stephen Keshi leads his team out to rescue their 2015 Nations Cup qualification come 15 November in Brazzaville.

The French-born Le Roy, a veteran of the Nations Cup stated that there was no way his wards will lose at home to the African champions who were snapped back to reality by the Congolese with a 3-2 win in Calabar.

That match was in the middle of the crisis that engulfed Nigerian Football Federation, but the dust seem to have settled and all hands are on deck for the possible mission of beating Congo at home and also taking all points when South Africa come visiting for the last qualification game.

Le Roy who was speaking on RFI was optimistic that Congo will beat Nigeria like they did in Calabar and it will guarantee their qualification for the Morocco 2015 tournament.

“I’m sure that we shall qualify for next year’s Nations Cup because we are not going to lose at home to Nigeria.

“I’m confident that we shall beat Nigeria, which will guarantee our place in next year’s tournament.

“The magic for us was beating Nigeria in Calabar, that result was so crucial for us and we are not going to let our effort go in vain when Nigeria comes to Congo”, Le Roy declared. South Africa are top the group with eight points, Congo have garnered seven points, while Nigeria have 4 points.
