Super Eagles defender, Azubuike Egwuekwe, has pledged to put up a superlative performance at the 2014 World Cup.

He spoke against the backdrop of his unimpressive outing during the 1-2 loss by his Warri Wolves side to Crown of Ogbomosho in Ibadan on Wednesday.

But Egwuekwe told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) after the Globacom Premier League match that he would not be found wanting at the World Cup.

“Today was not a good day for us, especially me. If we had played the way we often did, then we could have emerged victorious against Crown,’’ he said.

Egwuekwe is among the 30 players short listed for camping ahead of the Super Eagles’ preparation for the World Cup in Brazil.

The defender was among the bronze-winning team at the last African National Championship (CHAN) in South Africa in February.

Speaking on the presence of players like Lionel Messi of Argentina and Andrés Iniesta of Spain in their countries’ World Cup squads, he said there was nothing to fear.

Egwuekwe admitted that even though these were good players, he had the experience playing against them in the Confederation Cup .

“When we played against them at that competition, I saw them as players like me and that gave me the confidence to check them.

“It will surely be a different ball game when we play at the World Cup.

“My poor outing against Crown means nothing as I am prepared to hold any player if I make Coach Stephen Keshi’s squad,’’ he said.
