Super Eagles Will Win 2023 AFCON –Awoniyi

Super Eagles Will Win 2023 AFCON –Awoniyi

Super Eagles striker, Taiwo Awoniyi says he’s optimistic Nigeria has the right mentality and quality to win the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.

Recall that Nigeria sealed qualification for the tournament with a game to spare after defeating Sierra Leone 3-2 last month.

The Super Eagles have won the tournament three times and were eliminated in the Round of 16 by Tunisia at the last edition of the competition hosted by Cameroon.

However, in an interview with Channels Television, Awoniyi said that he’s confident will be champions again in Ivory Coast.

“I think everyone in the squad is happy; the first stage is to qualify for the AFCON which we did already, then the next stage now is just to try everything possible to win the AFCON, which is the target for the country,” Awoniyi told Channels Television.

“The last one was an experience, I was there and we are happy we are there again and of course, we want to go there and we want to win the trophy for sure.”

    This would have been the SUPER EAGLES 5th AFCON TITTLE WIN if GENERAL ROAH was not SACKED!It’s SAD that WE have been STUCK on 3 AFCON WINS for a DECADE now…



      This would have been SE 5 title if Corruption and Thievery was not the Order of the day in the Glass House. if players were selected on Merit (Our Strongest squad) and, we didn’t have a Captain that acts as CHEERLEADER, Rather a formidable captain that leads from the Trenches like Victor Osimhen.

      You see Argentina and Lionel Messi. That is the type of Captain a serious country needs not a Cheerleader forming gospel singer

      You Gerrit if you no get am forge about am.

    • Definitely nothing to do with Oga Rohr, And for your own sanity i suggest you let go of the matter concerning Rohr my bro. Nigeria is a Top side and deserves a better manager than Rohr a Top class manager i.e. Herve Reynard. I ask myself why the bloody NFF is failing this country so much. if NFF was serious there is no reason why Reynard is not our Coach. PERIODT!!

      like I said which would have beed the case had Corruption not been the DNA of NFF

        Peseiro can’t win the next AFCON. in Cote De’ Ivore 2024, why, cause he is an unwise and hasn’t any concepts of strong and orgnized defensive football or that means defensive style which can protect Super Eagles midfield and back line; so I think as said Awoniyi that Nigeria will win this cup, it needs many things to do by coach Peseiro and players and NFF administration ; these things as follows: Peseiro must rectify SE defensivs woes with strong and drastic defensive midfield and back line, with recalling strong and ferocious defensive in midfield and center backs just like Dinel Daga,Alhassan Ibrahim, Anderson Esiti, Frank Onyedika, Usman Mohammed in midfield; Tosin Adarabioyo, Kalib Okoli, Igoh Ugboh in center back; Sebestian Osigwe, Chijioze Aniagboso, Victor Sochima in goalkeeping side; he must make this overhaul so that he can change unzealous, lazy players from SE squad, then he can recall descipline, zealous players who can die for white and green jersy like I mentioned above; recalled players must put desciplinary mentality in thier heads so they can perform strong and imperssive style of play like 94 and 2000 generation had done; NFF must sponsor SE so excellently with providing excellent camp, good hotel, granting the players thier bounses as soon as possible, also coaches salaries must be payed on time, players who would like to pledge alliagence for SE NFF must squeeze out thier Nigeria nationality documents, NFF must organize big friendly matches versus big teams like Cote De Ivore, Algeria, Tunisia , Cameroon, Morocco, Ghana, Senegal after draw, NFF must select suitable one or tow or three of them to confront, NFF must hire Pyscological doctor and nutrition expert for SE so that they will support them to perform well.If all these things are done , I think SE can win this next cup.

    • You mean rohr the semi finals specialist. You mean ROHr that is not even confident to say we will win afcon. He never said it. You mean rohr that couldn’t risk an Oshimen in his last afcon with us. Monkey when are you going to stop weeping over mediocrity. When are you going to move on. If rohr is tge best thing that happened to you, he is not to me.

    • @monkey post But guy, but his name is ROHR, not Roah that you keep writing all the time. You love the man too much, na him you no sabi him name?  lol

        OGA it’s DELIBERATE.I decided to SPELL it that way thou without an R at the END because the MAN is a LION and LION do ROAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        But I think from now on I will start putting the R at the end. I mean the real roar of a lion

  • We believe you strikers that you guys can deliver, but can same be said of our midfielders? Capital NO!!!!.

    Also another barrier is NFF corrupt practise,so Awóníyì that your statment might be far from truth

    Awoniyi and Osimhen emphasize the importance of team cohesion under the authority of a respected manager.That is achieved. The Super Eagles’ weakness is the administration by the NFF.Corruption can never die in Nigeria
