 Nigeria coach, Eguavoen speaks on favourite team to win tournament - AFCON 2021 NEWS DEFAULT3



Super Eagles interim coach, Augustine Eguavoen has said that it is too early to name Nigeria as favourites to win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Cameroon.

Many believe Nigeria are favourite to win the 2021 AFCON after beating seven-time champions Egypt on Tuesday.

But Speaking ahead of Nigeria's clash with Sudan on Saturday, Eguavoen told newsmen on Friday during his pre-match press conference that it is hard to say the Super Eagles will win the tournament in Cameroon because it is a marathon.

Speaking on the development, Eguavoen said: "It is hard to say because it is a marathon. It is only the first game and like you all know, Egypt are seven-time African champions.

"They are not pushovers. They are a very strong team and whoever thinks that Egypt are not a strong side, he or she is making a big mistake.

"Yes, we were able to neutralise them, we were lucky at some point as well. We played very well, which is very good, credit to all the players.
