Head coach of Nigeria, Gernot Rohr, has identified Egypt as the only country that can stop the Super Eagles from reaching the semifinal of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON.

Rohr stated that it will be difficult for the three times African champions to reach the AFCON last four because of the quality of the host nation.

The AFCON will begin on 21 June with the final set for 19 July.

Nigeria will tackle Senegal in their final friendly on Sunday ahead of their AFCON opener against Burundi on June 22.

”For our fans, of course, it is clear that we will reach at least the semi-final. But that will be difficult because Egypt is a force at home,” Rohr told Mannheimer Morgen.

”I hope we can play a good role. And certainly one or the other surprise team will emerge.

”The Africa Cup is something very special in terms of ambience and significance. Of course we want to do well.

“We must underestimate no opponent. Burundi, for example, eliminated Gabon in qualifying. It means being careful.”
