Oghenekaro Etebo has backed the Super Eagles of Nigeria to win next year’s AFCON in Cameroon.
The Eagles will be hoping to land a fourth AFCON title, when they join 23 other teams for the continental showpiece.
The last time the Eagles won the AFCON was in 2013 in South Africa under late Stephen Keshi.
They will kick-off their campaign in Group D with Egypt, Guinea-Bissau and Sudan.
And Etebo, who unfortunately will miss the tournament due to injury, believes the Eagles are good enough for the title.
“That’s difficult! It’s going to be really interesting. I’m going to go for my country, Nigeria. I believe it’s going to be difficult though,” he said while answering questions on a weekly show Inside The Hive.
And when asked about his Nigerian teammate Emmanuel Dennis, he said:
“He’s so good, he’s got everything. Good pace, dribbling, he can take on defenders.
“He’s a fantastic player. One thing he said to me before every game is that he is very nervous. That will tell you he has the team on his mind.”
Etebo has made six appearances in the Premier League since arriving on loan from Stoke City in the summer, impressing from the base of midfield. He is currently on the road to recovery from a quadricep injury
