Lukman Haruna: Soon We Will Have Information On BordeauxDynamo Kiev midfielder Lukman Haruna has commented on the Ukrainian vice - champions winter preparations to the press in Ukraine. with reference to the official website of Dynamo Kiev , quoted Haruna as saying: ''The second training will no longer be so tough, more attention will be paid to team tactics. Nevertheless, we have to work hard to prepare well for the upcoming matches of the UEFA Europa League with Bordeaux .''

''Players are not machines, and sometimes there are situations when we get tired. However, given the good work of club doctors and physiotherapists, could fully recover between workouts and continue to perform.

''I am sure that soon we will get acquainted with developments on Bordeaux, and February 14, when the first match with the French is played, we are thoroughly prepared, and have all the necessary information.

''In the preparatory phase, at the disposal of the coaching staff are a lot of players, and each must have match practice. None of the players have special privileges, all are equal. As for me, I will try to do my job, and the coach will decide who will play in the upcoming official matches,'' adds Haruna.

Haruna, who represented Nigeria at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, also commented on his expectations of the Super Eagles who have qualified for the quarter-finals of the African Nations Cup.

He said the victory over Ethiopia did not come on a platter of gold and has tipped Nigeria to overcome tournament favorites Ivory Coast in Sunday's quarter-finals.

''I would not say (the victory against Ethiopia was easy). Neither team did not come to the final of the tournament for fun, want to win everything. Ethiopia has shown that is a good team, a draw with Zambia (1-1). And in the match against Nigeria Ethiopians held up until the last moments then conceded  two goals from the penalty spot.

''Of course, I would be wishing the Eagles only victory. Despite the fact that Ivory Coast have strong players who play in the top tournaments, but our guys, too, were not born yesterday. I am confident that Nigeria will have a chance to beat the opponent, and we should use it,'' said the former Monaco midfielder.

In conclusion, Lukman Haruna says he is in contact with teammate Brown Ideye who is in South Africa with the National Team.

''Several times I called him to wish him good luck. Brown wants to play in every game, his actions helping the team, and, of course, to stay in South Africa as long as possible - up to the finals.''
