Nigeria/Guinea: CHAN - Guinea Can't Stop Us - Chikatara

Four goal hero and Super Eagles forward, Chisom Chikatara has said the Syli Nationale of Guinea will not halt Eagles dream for quarterfinals berth at the ongoing
African Nations Championship (CHAN) in Rwanda. Eagles will clash with their West African opposite, Guinea in tomorrow's last group game at the Stade Umuganda Rubavu, Gisenyi.

The Eagles lead the pack in Group C on four points, two points ahead of Guinea and Tunisia. The outcome of the group's matches will determine qualifiers for the last eight. Chikatara said though Eagles do not see the clash against Guinea as a must win they will fight hard to finish the group campaign on high. "Guinea cannot stop us from booking our safe passage to the quarter-finals of the championship on Tuesday.

"Though we do not see the match as a must win, we have however told ourselves we must finish on high the group race. "Understandably, Guinea will come out tough aimed at chalking the points that will see them progress to the last eight but we will not allow them the luxury.

"We have already steeled ourselves for whatever banter Guinea will come up with same way we handled the Nigeriens and Tunisians. "Tunisians were the toughest so far in the championship but we ended the clash with our shoulders held high.
