S’Eagles young striker, Paul Onuachu made a bold statement when asked if no fans in the stadium will affect the Super Eagles, he responded by saying,  “we all know that football without the fans is incomplete. We all play for the fans but nevertheless, we have to go unto the pitch to do our jobs and win for the people who are at home watching. We just have to go out there to fight and win the game (against Sierra Leone).

  Of course, in Nigeria we are used to playing with the fans, you know. With the music – the singing and dancing – it’s all about the beauty and the fun of the game. But we’ve been playing games at our various clubs without the fans for some time now and we are getting used to it somehow. I think we just have to bring the same character out for the national team and play to our best because we know our fans back home will be watching on television. So without the fans, we just have to play and win to make the country proud.

  Reacting to his goal drought he said, “well, a footballer’s life is full of ups and down but you have to try to find your balance, you know. For me, I have to just keep working hard and keep fighting to be part of the team and whenever I’m part of the team, I will always do my best to score for the country. But if it is not coming yet, I can’t really do anything about it than to keep working hard and keep helping the team to win, that’s the most important thing.”
