Exclusive: Super Eagles Solid Enough To Win 2023 AFCON  –Alloy Agu

Former Nigerian international, Alloy Agu says the Super Eagles are solid enough to win the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations slated for Ivory Coast.

Nigeria, who are three-time AFCON champions, are pitted alongside host Ivory Coast, Guinea-Bissau and Equatorial Guinea in Group A.

However, in a chat with Completesports.com, Agu stated that the Super Eagles are blessed with an array of talents capable of overcoming any opponent at the tournament.

“At this stage I know the Super Eagles knows what is at stake and they will be willing to give it their best shot at the tournament.


” I believe we have the materials and a solid team and it is left for us to harness it together.

“I don’t doubt the ability of the Super Eagles and I pray for a very good outing.”

The tournament, featuring 24 teams, will run from January 13th to February 11th. The top two teams from each group, along with the best four third-placed teams, will progress to the knockout phase.

    NFF is solid enough to pay all outstanding players’ bonuses and coaches’ salaries.
    They are very very solid. Paying the money is not a problem for them at all at all.
    They have the money, and they have to pay. Every kobo owed should be paid up.

    This dude is always yupping! Can u chill small 

  • Well, it’s very good to be optimistic but I truth, Alloy Agu didn’t put forward any material pointers to justify his opinion that Nigeria is solid enough to lift the Afcon trophy. Any keen eyed observer would not be blind to several area in need of massive improvement in the team.

    Some of these are:

    – plug goalkeeping loopholes.
    -Settle on a centre defensive pairing less prone to error.
    – Build a solid defensive midfield apparatus.
    – Improve the quality of deliveries from the wings.
    – Promote better timing of runs into the box 18.
    – Strikers being more clinical.
    – Ability to keep clean sheets in consecutive games.

    To be honest, the Super Eagles have several lapses across the pitch which must be addressed expeditiously. For now, all I can say is that Peseiro’s boys are a formidable out with players potentially able to produce moments of magic.
