Ethiopia national team coach, Sewnet Bishaw, is optimistic of victory when his side meets the Super Eagles in the return leg of the 2014 Fifa World Cup playoff on Saturday in Calabar.

Nigeria emerged 2-1 winners over the East Africans in the first leg of the race to the next summer’s soccer showpiece staged in Addis Ababa last month, however, the visiting coach stated emphatically his boys are much better away from home and will give whatever it takes to overturn their first leg defeat.

“We are here for business and I am confident we would get a result this weekend in Calabar,” Bishaw said.

“If you check our records, you would agree that we do a lot better away from home. We have not lost in our last three competitive away matches and I don’t think this weekend would be different.

“I know it would be a difficult game but I am confident we would get the desired result.”

Ethiopia first attempted to reach the finals in 1962 (same year they won the Afcon) and, despite being a regular competitor in a race for a debut appearance has never made a mark.

They arrived in Calabar at about 1pm local time on Thursday and went straight to their first session at the University of Calabar Stadium.

They will have their first feel of the UJ Esuene Stadium today (Friday) before thronging onto the same pitch on Saturday for the final duel.
