Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo has expressed confidence that Gernot Rohr’s men will do well at the 2019 African Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Egypt later this year.
Ighalo said this following Nigeria’s 3-1 win over Seychelles in the last AFCON qualifying Group E game in Asaba on Friday.
Goals from Odion Ighalo, Henry Onyekuru, and Moses Simon ensured the Super Eagles defeated Seychelles.
However, Rody Melanie did the score for the visitors.
Ighalo, however, is optimistic about the chances of Nigeria winning on North African soil again.
”I must commend the coach (Gernot Rohr) for the wonderful job he is doing, trying to prepare the team ahead of the AFCON,” Ighalo was quoted by CSN as saying.
“I have no doubt that we are going to do well in Egypt. Majority of the players are from the World Cup team in Russia, we have played together and we know ourselves very well.”
