Nigeria goalkeeper, Maduka Okoye has come out to say that the Super Eagles are ready for AFCON 2021. He recently revealed that despite the loss vs Cameroon last Friday, the boys are still ready for the competition.
According to him, Nigerians have to take some positives from the friendly game because the team only conceded with the opponent’s lone shot on target.
He added that the strength of character Nigeria showed after conceding the goal vs Cameroon prove they have it in them to do well on the continent.
His words, “We have taken some positives from the first match against Cameroon.”
“We had a good game and it was unfortunate that they scored with just that one shot on target.”
“However, we have shown that we are ready for the Afcon with the strength of character we showed after conceding the goal. We are ready to go for it on Tuesday.”
Ahmed Musa added, “We are not happy to have created so many chances and fail to score.”
“We will approach the game differently on Tuesday. Cameroon is a big rival and we are not happy to have lost the game on Friday.”
