Vincent Enyeama, Super Eagles stand-in captain has advised his national team mates to fight with the last drop of their blood against Liberia tomorrow if they want to qualify for the Nations Cup after the sour point of last year's loss to Guinea.

The Maccabi Tel Aviv shot-stopper warned his team mates not to expect a stroll in the pack against Liberia's Lone Star in the second leg tie of their 2013 Nations Cup qualifier.

The former Enyimba goalkeeper stated that the Eagles would have to be at their best against Liberia.

"The Liberians have a good squad and they will fight with the last drop of their blood on Saturday. We will also fight until we get our objective that is the game of football", Enyeama told Goal.com.

"We will qualify by the help of God. There is no second thought of not qualifying at

all. We are not working for a draw. It is victory that is on our minds.

"Nigerians should support us through their prayers. It is not going to be easy.

"It is not going to be a bread and butter thing. It will be tough. Let's see how it goes," Enyeama added.

Nigeria held the Liberians to a 2-2 draw in Monrovia in the first leg and a win in Calabar will see the team pick a ticket to the 2013 edition of the Nations Cup after missing out of the 2012 version.
