What Chukwueze is saying
Nigerian forward Samuel Chukwueze believes the Super Eagles have what it takes to win the African Cup of Nations for the first time since 2013.
“We are trying to recover and focus on the game on Sunday, the final against the host country,” the AC Milan attacker told reporters.
“I believe in this team; we’ve been fighting since the beginning of the competition, and it’s time to bring the trophy home.
“We have talked together as a group, we will keep working hard in training and ensure we will win the trophy.”
PESEIRO IS ADVISED TO CHANGE TACTIC.
“They improved gradually, like every other squad. They maintained a strong battling spirit throughout the competition. I observed improvements from one match to the next, which is admirable. Overall, they are doing well and are ready to compete in the final.”
