“They need to send us the positive energy that we need to deliver,” he said. “We need everyone to believe in us – that we will win and we will qualify.”
Nigeria is walking on a tight rope to qualify for the 2010 world cup as it has to defeat Kenya this weekend and hope the Mozambique national team will lose to current Group leaders-Tunisians
“The mood is good,” Odemwingie told the BBC’s Fast Track programme..”No-one who is in the camp has any major injuries and we know what’s at stake for all of us now, so we are in a good state of mind.”
He acknowledged that Nigeria are relying on Mozambique to do them a favour but said the team cannot worry about that match, which kicks-off at the same time.
“We will think about the possible result of Mozambique Tunisia – and they (Mozambique) haven’t lost at home for a long time,” Odemwingie said.
“But on the day itself against Kenya it will be a very difficult game, and we know our qualifying ticket lies in that stadium (in Nairobi).
“So I think we will forget everything and only after the final whistle of course we will wait for the other result.
“Now we are calculating but on the day of the game we will forget about everything and know that Kenya are not going to give us a victory easily.”
