AFCON 2021: No Hiding Place For Sudan –Adepoju

AFCON 2021: No Hiding Place For Sudan –Adepoju

Former Nigerian midfielder, Mutiu Adepoju has predicted that the Super Eagles will overcome Sudan in Saturday’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations Group D game.

Adepoju stated this in an interview with Brila FM, where he revealed that there will be no hiding place for the Sudanese team.


“Super Eagles has what it takes to take care of Sudan.

“I am sure they will want to frustrate the Super Eagles having seen their performance against Egypt. But I think they Sudan will fall.”

AFCON 2022 Zabira

Recall that Nigeria beat Egypt 1-0 to open their Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) campaign, the other two teams in Group D, Guinea-Bissau and Sudan played out a goalless draw to complete the first round of matches for that group.

Nigeria has a better head to head against their North African foes. In 14 games played between both sides since their first meeting in 1963, the West Africans have won eight times, drawn four times and have lost just twice to the Falcons of Sudan.

    Sudan is more endowed physically than Egypt. So it’s a good test to see how the new look S.E style performs with a physical side in case we meet Cameron or CIV later on. In a related development, its Mind blogging that a player from Saudi Arabian league (Vincent Abubakar ) is currently leading the goals scorers charts. This lends credence to the fact that there is no direct correlation between a players performance in the national and club side. What matters is how the player dovetail with the National team’s style and composition as well as the overall output. It is against this background that I want to use this forum to appeal to fans to stop kicking against the return of Ighalo as well as stop the clamour for Musa’s retirement. Ighalo is currently the leading scorer in Saudi Arabia whr Abubakar plays. Who knows whether he will have helped SE put away some of the begging Chances created against Egypt. In conclusion These three plays must be invited if they fit for the world cup final round after AFCON to make the easy easier; VM, Ighalo, and Musa

      @Four Four two, bros can you please tell us if Ighalo has the pace, strength and powerful play of Aboubakar ? The answer is NO. He doesn’t. Though he may have goal sense and positioning but that’s not enough to displace the current strikers we have in the SE. Remember Osimhen, Dennis and Dessers are not here. Yet Ihaenacho, Awoniyi and Umar will still do their best that i know. So no room for Ighalo abeg and his captain Musa. Both should please retire honourably after AFCON. Ademola Lookman, Amoo still in the book so Musa have no space in the Eagles anymore. Only Victor Moses still look good enough to break into the team

      • Umanna Bassey 5 days ago

        @Sean…Odion Ighalo is the highest goal scorer in the league where Abubakar plays. And if you could go back to the videos of our matches played so far in Afcon, 80% of the goal scorers aren’t from the best clubs. Mo Salah hasn’t scored and even some of them that did like ours sincerely, could barely trap ball and even missed glaring chances. against the Pharaohs of Egypt. So, are you for real or just for the sake of typing a comment?

        • @Umanna Bassey again we are building not just for AFCOn but World Cup bro. Your short sightedness Is similar to that of Rohr, We fought Tooth and Nail to see Taiwo Awoniyi get his call up and you saw for yourself the sharpness and form he brought against Egypt. Why not just chill on this mediocre Nonsense?. If Cameroon had a better option than Abubakar in a top League Like Nigeria currently has littered everywhere your Abubakar will be starting on the Bench.

          Not just this We still have players I.e. Victor Osimhen, Emma Dennis, Ademola Lookman, and Co coming back to this set up Southampton Star Nathan Tella has just Expressed his interest in playing for Nigeria. We have too much quality to be looking at players coming from Mediocre leagues. Ighalo is good but What Taiwo Awoniyi showed against Egypt is just to tell you Ighalo has dropped down the pecking order as our No 1 No 9 Osimhen will still need to be introduced. Stop this rubbish man Nigeria is moving forward not Backwards in Jesus Name!

          @Umanna Bassey you are right the goals came from players who aren’t from the “Best teams”, Sane Mane(Liverpool), Kelechi Iheanacho (Leicester),Karl Toko Ekambi (Lyon). Oh I’m sorry they only scored four goals. We have to as a matter of urgency replce all the players with NPFL players they are in the “aren’t from the best teams” category you just talked about.

    • Ikor 5 days ago

      You are absolutely right. Watch out ighalo will show up in the knockout proper. Inasmuch his name is still in the team.

    The centre forward area is fully stacked ighalo should stay at home there are competent players to fill that shoe Desser is there.

    The wingers we have are okay Musa should retire after AFCON 2021 for Amoo to have access into super eagles.

    Victor Moses assist and work rate is impeccable for all to see and it’s suits the present super eagles playing style so he is the only one I think is welcomed. The rest should give way for fresh legs.

    Honestly we need to take the bull by the horn and not waste slots for the WC unlike caf who allowed 28 the WC will only allow 23 except they change it before then. This generation has to be used to its fullest potential and that will be at least reaching the quarter final of the WC. I don’t care if Aboubakar plays in the same league as Ighalo he retired and should stay retired than trying to sneak his way back in knowing the WC is close……Why didnt he come out of retirement during qualifers others labored and now he wants to chop……Abeg let the youth take over just like you had your opportunity.

      I feel your bitterness but without Odion to collaborate with Osimhen in the Eagles attack formation, many scoring opportunities will be wasted. You could see how difficult it was Kelechi Iheanacho to trap ordinary ball in the Egyptian 18 yards box. A coach that knows his onions won’t take such risk mostly when presented with an experienced and better striker.

  • Umanna Bassey 5 days ago

    Though the S.E no9 jersey which was met to be worn by Odion is still reserved for us, and coupled with the wasted opportunities witnessed in the match against Egypt that saw our strikers missing glaring chances in one on one situations, it calls to sane minds the need to have experienced Odion Ighalo in the SE squad for the WCplay offs. Our coach should at least concentrate with the task at hand as we will cross the bridge when we get there.

  • kunle bambi 5 days ago

    You could see how difficult it was Kelechi ‘for’ Iheanacho to trap ordinary ball in the Egyptian 18 yards box.

  • Umanna Bassey 5 days ago

    @Ugo Uwoye ..Lmfao.. Awoniyi that was scared to shoot at the goal post or which one are you talking about? You need experienced strikers like Ighalo and not those rockies who are still trial by error. If Odion was available you think Iheanacho would have been on the pitch against Egypt? You have better had a second thinking coming. OR didn’t you notice to trap ball was difficult for our so-called strikers in that match? It tells you experience counts.

  • Ikor 5 days ago

    You are absolutely right. Watch out ighalo will show up in the knockout proper. Inasmuch his name is still in the team.

  • Detruth 5 days ago

    I see a lot of people on the comment section who can trap a ball with their pinky toe but couldn’t make it to our substandard domestic league.

  • What ighalo… ighalo cannot offer what iheanacho offers…. ighalo that Lacks pace…abeg let’s focus on our team
