SK Beveren winger Ishmael Taofeeq has sent a heartfelt message to the Dream Team VIII ahead of their all important game against Tanzania on Saturday.
The Olympic Eagles drew 1-1 with Tanzania in the first leg encounter at Benjamin Mpaka Stadium and will hope to zoom to next round of qualification for U23 Africa Cup of Nations on Saturday.
Taofeeq who has been a nightmare to defenders in the Belgian Challenger Pro League this season believes the team has what it takes to overcome their Tanzanian opponent.
The Oyo born forward made this disclosure in a chat with the Media from his base in Belgium on Friday afternoon.
“I believe the Olympic Eagles would get the job done and dusted in Ibadan,” Ishmael Taofeeq said.
“There are good players in the team who are capable of ensuring that Nigerians have something to cheer on Saturday.
“The likes of Nathaniel Nwosu, Success Makanjuola and Ibrahim Sunusi are players I know very well. So the team shouldn’t have problem winning the game,” he added.
Lorient owned Ishmael Taofeeq has already racked up three assists for SK Beveren this season.
