    Afcon need more money to inspire confidence and participation. Clubs refusal to respect the tournament is because of poor amount of money at stake as prize money to be won in the competition. Africa should help themselves by levelling up, so that the rest of the world will accord them the respect they deserve. Inject more money and improve infrastructures and watch things fall into pleasant places.

    Even if you tripple the amount, this team under this lame ass coach can’t do shit!

  • Why super eagles will win afcon.

    1. Nigeria, even with weaker teams have been able to do well in the competition.

    2. Nigeria alwsy thrive during controversies or adversity.

    3. These players want to prove a point. Especially the debutants. The last coach denied lot of them that opportunity..

    4. The coach is experienced as a player he was a winner and as a coach he won bronze.

    5. These players will win afcon for Nigeria – chukwueze, ejuke, sodiq Umar, Aribo and iwobi (iwobi will use this afcon to prove a big point).

    I am sticking my head out… We will win afcon 2021.
