CHAN: Eagles can do more than bronze — Anyansi-Agwu
As the Super Eagles prepare to storm Rwanda for the CAF African Nations Championship, Nigeria Football Federation technical committee chairman, Felix Anyasi-Agwu said the team can go all the way to the final.
The Eagles, coached by Stephen Keshi managed a bronze in their debut, at the 2014 edition. It was a competition they were tipped to win, having won the African Nations Cup 2013 in South Africa.
“This is not like setting a target. But we believe the Eagles should also do their best to improve on our past record in the tournament.
“The expectation of Nigerians is that we should surpass our bronze in the last outing.”
The Super Eagles buoyed by their win against Cote d’ Ivoire and draw against Angola in their build up to the CHAN, will play Niger Republic on January 18 and later face Tunisia and Guinea, the other teams in group B.
In Rwanda, Nigeria will parade some of the stars of the past season – Tunde Adeniji and Chisom Chikatara scored between them 29 goals in the last campaign, defenders Chima Akas, Austin Oboroakpo and Orji Kalu were consistent at their clubs, while Ifeanyi Matthew, Paul Onobi, Ezekiel Bassey and Bature Yaro were the driving forces for their respective teams.
