Nigeria can win AFCON 2019- Says Abayomi



Nigeria has what it takes to win the 2019 African Nations Cup in Egypt as the Super Eagles is a fusion of youth, talents and experience that can shake the continent.

The President of Authentic Nigeria Football Supporters Club, Ogunjimi Abayomi told the Nigerian Pilot in an exclusive interview that the Super Eagles has players who can hold their own to win the trophy for the country.

Abayomi said with the high level of competition for shirts in the team because of abundance of stars for the Technical Adviser to draw from, the players picked will be the best for the country to win the competition.

“I am confident that with the array of stars and the discovering of younger talents who have proved their worth in the team, Rohr will definitely have a squad to go for the cup in Egypt.

“The competition for shirts is high and is good for the team, our players are doing well in their various clubs and hopefully if they double their effort, no country can stop us in Egypt.

“As Nigerians all they need from us all is total support and prayers and as you can see we are working hard as a body to ensure we are solidly behind the team in Egypt,” Abayomi said.

On the various supporters clubs springing up across the country, the president said his own group was formed to give back to the country their own quota towards the success of the national teams both at home and international scene.

He said every group has the right to give maximum support to the team, adding that his body was open to credible democratic process towards avoiding rifts among the members.

He noted that that the major concern of his group was how best they can cheer the Eagles to victory in Egypt.

Abayomi also commended the Amaju Pinnick led Nigeria Football Federation board, for creating the enabling environments for the team to excel.
