Agu: Benin, Rwanda Can’t Stop Eagles From Qualifying For 2025 AFCON

Former Nigerian international Alloy Agu says he’s optimistic the Super Eagles will qualify for the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations.

Recall that Nigeria has been grouped alongside the Benin Republic, Rwanda, and Libya.

The qualifying matches will be played over the FIFA windows of September, October, and November this year.

However, in a chat with Completesports.com, Agu stated that Benin and Rwanda are familiar foes that won’t pose any strong threat to the team.

He also advised the players to approach the game with a positive mindset.

“On paper, the group looks very fair to the Super Eagles, but then, football is always played on the pitch and not by mouth. But I am confident the Super Eagles will qualify for AFON 2025.’

“Yes, Benin and Rwanda are two teams Nigeria is battling with in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers, and we have seen the result against Benin. 

“However, the Super Eagles must approach the game well and not underestimate any team in Group D.”

    Hahahaha….they have started again. The same Benin and Rwanda that has already stopped Nigeria from qualifying for 2026 WC….?! Actually we havent even met Rwanda yet, but we are already out….LMAOoo

    This is July….as it stands the SE has neither coach….nor backroom staff. Our next coach will be meeting his team for the first time during 2 crucial AFCON doubles headers. He will likely only have 2 full training sessions before his first game as the new season would already be underway, and we will be meeting teams with already established technical and tactical stability.

    The next afcon qualifiers being a sprint will mean that any point dropped may be difficult to recover. And this man is here making empty boasts.

    NFF please find a job for Aloy Agu as soon as possible. We are tired of reading his interviews on CSN…bikonu.

    IT IS VERY EASY TO USE MOUTH TO SAY RWAANDA, THIS & THAT CANNOT STOP US IN PARTICIPATING IN AFCON AS IF IT IS OUR BIRTH RIGHT TO QUALIFY FOR AFCON.
    IN 2012,2015,2017 AFCON QUALIFIERS, WHO STOP NIGERIA NOT TO QUALIFIER.
    EVEN PRESENTLY, WHO ABOUT TO STOP NIGERIA NOT TO QUALIFY FOR WORLD CUP?
    YOU CAN IMAGINE, ORDINARY LESOTHO, ZIMBABWE WANT TO STOP SO-CALLED GIANT OF AFRICA NOT TO PARTICIPATE IN NEXT WORLD CUP.
    ** NIGERIA SHOULD FORGET BEING QUALIFY FOR NEXT AFCON WITH ALL THESE UNPATRIOTIC, LAZY SUPER EAGLE PLAYERS.
    ** BENIN, RWANDA ARE FAR FAR BETTER THAN ZIMBABWE, LESOTHO

    The problem is any team that can score two goals against eagles wil win the game . If a team is only able to score one goal against super eagles then the game could be a draw.
    Again any team that is strong in the middle against eagles wil probably win the game .

    Any team that constantly attack the eagles might loss the game .
    Any coach that can keep eagles in camp for two weeks before a game could beat any team in fifa top 10 ranking
