Kenneth Omeruo is confident that Nigeria will come up trumps in their home and away 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Libya this month.

The Super Eagles are at home to the Group E leaders in Uyo on Saturday, before taking on the same opponents in Libya's newly adopted home in Algeria a few days later.

Libya currently lead the way in the group following a goalless draw away to South Africa in Durban in their most recent encounter. Nigeria got their campaign back on track with a 3-0 thumping of the Seychelles in Victoria having suffered a surprise 2-0 defeat at home to Bafana Bafana last year.

Leganes defender, Omeruo, is confident that Nigeria will build on their recent win and has urged the country's faithful to come out in support of the Super Eagles this weekend.

“We will be up against a strong Libyan side but we are the Super Eagles and we have a great squad,” Omeruo is quoted as saying by the NFF's official twitter page.

“We will give our all to pick maximum six points from both games.

“I have confidence in the entire crew. We urge all our fans to get behind us and give us all the support. We will not disappoint you all.”
