Portsmouth ace Kanu: We can reach Europe

Kanu said: “No matter what we say and no matter how we try to forget about it, it’s the dream of every player to play in Europe. We’ve worked hard to get where we are in the table, so why should we let it go now?

“For me, we now have to work twice as hard for the remainder of the season to try to make it. And we have to have the confidence and belief to think we can do it.

“It will mean such a lot for me, personally, to be playing in Europe again. It will be a tremendous achievement for Pompey, and we want to reward the supporters.

“Now they don’t have to sing about staying up, only about trying to reach Europe.”
