Former Super Eagles star and Enyimba manager, Finidi George has predicted the team to win the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations. 

Before Sunday’s 6-0 win over Sao Tome and Principe, Nigeria had already qualified for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

The AFCON 2023 will be played in January next year and will be hosted by Ivory Coast.

Finidi stated that Nigeria would win next year’s tournament in Ivory Coast. 

Finidi, a former Ajax ace and a key member of the Nigerian squad that won the AFCON in 1994 spoke to reporters in Uyo after the game.

 “Every country wants to win the AFCON before the AFCON but when you get there it all depends on how you start the tournament.

“If you start well the confidence builds up, that will take you even further so our aim is to win it, but you never know what can happen.

“[nigeria] will go there with the mindset to win it. First mission for the AFCON is to win it.”
