"We are equal to the task" - Eguavoen speaks ahead of AFCON 2021 2

Super Eagles interim head coach Austine Eguavoen has voiced confidence in his team’s ability to at the upcoming 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Following Gernot Rohr’s dismissal, Eguavoen will oversee the Super Eagles’ campaign for a fourth continental title in Cameroon early next year.

Egypt, Guinea-Bissau, and Sudan are in Group D with the West Africans.

They must also compete with heavyweights such as Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, and Senegal in order to reclaim control of the continent.


However, the former defender is certain that they can win the competition.

Expectations are high, but we are equal to the task,” Eguavoen told Nigeria Info FM

“We want to try and bring smile on the faces of Nigerians at the AFCON.”

He said he hopes to do by playing “entertaining football pushing forward to score goals while also being mindful of the defence.


“We have intelligent players, who will play the way we want them to play,” he said.

“We want all 11 players working together.

“We will play with 11, attack with 11 and defend with 11.
