Super Eagles dismiss AFCON favourites tag – Score Nigeria
Coach Augustine Eguavoen has maintained the Super Eagles are still not the favourites to win the AFCON in Cameroon despite the rave reviews following their opening day victory.
The Eagles got off to a flying start with a deserved 1-0 win over the most successful country at the AFCON.
“Favourites (to win AFCON)? It’s too early,” said caretaker coach.
“It won’t be easy, we first want to win (vs Sudan tomorrow) to secure a place in the Round of 16, like Cameroon did yesterday.
“Sudan are no pushovers, so they will push harder. They will raise their game, but we will respond well.
“It won’t be easy like I said, but that’s our mission.
“All eyes on our target.
“We want to win every game, but we approach it game after game. We don’t expect every game to be smooth.”
In the meantime, the Eagles coach said Chidozie Awaziem will soon return to action with the team after an ankle injury.
“Hopefully soon he will be back,” he said.
