Ex Nigeria player, Emmanuel Amuneke has come out to say that Super Eagles must remain focused during the tournament. This is coming amid talks that Nigeria are current favourites to win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
According to him, the boys must thread with caution amid such talks because there are other teams who will continue to improve at the competition.
Amuneke added that full concentration should be on winning the remaining group games right now.
His words, “We must tread with caution because there are other good teams also.”
“The most important thing for the Super Eagles is to win their games, pick points and it allows them to progress.”
“It will be unfair to make noise about title ambitions because there are other teams as good as we are.”
“Well, the most important thing is that the players are excited, you could see that spirit in them, they want to do something for themselves and I hope they will have that continuity.”
“The good thing about the game [against Egypt] was that Nigeria went in with a plan and they were able to execute it very well.”
“When you look at the game from the first half, you would see that the Egyptians tried to build from the back, but they found it difficult to connect with their strikers.”
“At the end of the day, that is what football is all about because when you go to a match with a plan and you execute it, at the end of the day, you pick the maximum points. That was what Nigeria did.”
“It is not always easy when teams with a pedigree like Nigeria and Egypt come up against one another, everyone wants to show their pride. I know Egypt will qualify but I wish both teams all the best.”
