Super Eagles and former Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo has come out to say he believes Nigeria can go ahead and win the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations title. The former Chelsea defender said all they need to do is take one game at a time. The Eagles qualified for the round of 16 after a convincing 3-1 victory against Sudan on Saturday.

Samuel Chukwueze, Taiwo Awoniyi, and Moses Simon all scored to give Nigeria a 3-0 lead before Khedr Daiyeen scored a consolation goal from the penalty spot for the Falcons of Jediane in the 70th minute. Kenneth Omeruo said: “We have the ability to win the AFCON, but we have to take each game as it comes.”
He also said: “This squad is as talented as the team that won it the last time in 2013, so we are confident but remain focused on the next game.” “I played with him several times in the national team, and we were partners at the last tournament, but above all, we’ve been in the team together for over six years, so we have a bond, the team inclusive.” “We will keep growing, and I hope this time we win the cup, but we must not take anything for granted.”
Super Eagles have already been told that they will receive $10,000 for every game they win, which is a big boost and motivation for the team to do even better. Nigeria leads Group D with six points and will face Guinea Bissau in their final group game on Wednesday.
