The Super Eagles are three-time African champions, but they’ve not won the competition since beating Burkina Fason in the 2013 final
Victor Osimhen believes the current Nigerian team are well-equipped to win next year’s Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
The Super Eagles head into the competition as one of the favourites after finishing top of their qualifying group unbeaten.
Gernot Rohr’s men finished top of Group L with four wins and two draws. Aside from that, the three-time African champions are blessed with numerous talents, especially in the attacking department.
The Super Eagles have the likes of Paul Onuachu, Samuel Chukwueze, Kelechi Iheanacho, Terem Moffi- who are impressing at their respective clubs- in their squad.
And Osimhen believes this group of players can finally win the country’s fourth continental title in Cameroon next year.
“I think we’ve got everything we need to win the next Afcon and to go even more further to qualify for the World Cup, Osimhen told ESPN.
Because this is a squad that has extremely wonderful talent in this team the from the goalkeepers to the strikers, from the strikers to the bench,” he added.
Osimhen also added that there are many players with individual brilliance in the squad, and that will give the team an edge in Cameroon.
And I think for us, we have individual players who can individually win games for us. The likes of Kelechi, Samuel Chukwueze, Alex Iwobi, myself, Paul and rest of the of the squad, Osimhen added.
The Super Eagles will be aiming to end a seven-year wait for a fourth continental title when Afcon kicks off next year.
