    All this small teams are not joking at all, Cape verde, Equatorial guinea now mauritania. This AFCON dey sweet now

  • This is indeed one of the best afcon show ever. Interesting.

    Congrats to super eagles in advance. They will beat Cameroon.

    • And some mumu will see nothing good in SE and peseiro achievement of straight qualification when the host nation is praying and fasting as we speak for Morocco to win for them tomorrow.
      Ghana out, Algeria out, Cameroun scrap through by mother luck, yet we see nothing good in what our boys have done.

        Even Egypt too, a seven times winner,qualified for the second round with a skin of their teeth, they are yet to win a single match in the championship, with all three matches they have played, ending in draw. Super Eagles are going places by God’s grace.
