Former Nigeria international Nwankwo Kanu has expressed confidence that the U-23 Eagles will qualify for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
The coach Samson Siasia-led team surrendered a two-goal lead against Egypt in Wednesday's group B clash at the U-23 Cup of Nations in Senegal.
Reacting to the draw against Egypt, the Atlanta 1996 gold medallist urged the players to work hard to get the Olympic ticket.
"After 2-2 with Egypt are we going to be in Brazil? I think we can make it, it's all about belief. Work hard and get the ticket. Come on boys!" Kanu wrote on his Twitter handle on Thursday.
The U-23 Eagles will take on Algeria in Dakar on Saturday, and must get a favourable result to stand a chance of qualifying for the Olympics.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
