Super Eagles striker, Taiwo Awoniyi, has expressed his optimism that the team will win next year’s Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.
Jose Peseiro’s men have sealed qualification for the tournament with one game to spare, following a 3-2 win over Sierra Leone last month.
The Super Eagles have won the tournament three times and were eliminated in the Round of 16 by Tunisia at the last edition of the competition hosted by Cameroon.
However, in an interview with Channels Television, Awoniyi said that he’s confident will be champions again in Ivory Coast.
“I think everyone in the squad is happy; the first stage is to qualify for the AFCON which we did already, then the next stage now is just to try everything possible to win the AFCON, which is the target for the country,” Awoniyi told Channels Television.
“The last one was an experience, I was there and we are happy we are there again and of course, we want to go there and we want to win the trophy for sure.”
