Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has set his sights on victory in Tuesday’s Africa Cup of Nations Group C encounter with Ethiopia at Rustenburg, after Nigeria drew 1-1 with Zambia on Friday, Mtnfootball.com reports.

The Eagles could not defend their lead as they allowed the defending champions to fight back and cancel out Emmanuel Emenike’s 57th minute opener.

Keshi said, “We wanted the three points, with due respect to Zambia, they are a great team and have been together for the past four years and also they are the defending champs.

“All the same, I’m happy with the result.

“We just have to get ahead and forge ahead against a very good Ethiopia team.”
