Former Nigerian international, Peter Rufai believes the Super Eagles will be one of the difficult teams to beat at the 2023 African Cup of Nations.
Recall that Nigeria ended their campaign in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifying series in grand style as they romped to a 6-0 win over Sao Tome and Principe at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo.
With the victory, the Super Eagles finished top in Group A with 15 points; scoring an astonishing 22 goals in the process.
However, in a chat the 1994 AFCON winner, said that the Super Eagles will be tough nut to crack at the tournament.
He also said that the crop of players at Jose Peseiro’s disposal are blessed with talents.
“I am very delighted with the general performance of the Super Eagles against Sao Tome and in the group. This is just what Nigerians want to see, goals and goals.
“But critically looking at the team, I want to believe that they will be a tough nut to crack at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations. Nigeria have quality players at the moment and I am optimistic they will go far in Ivory Coast.”
