The Super Eagles Have All It Takes To Win The AFCON On Sunday – Peter Osaze
According to Channels Television, Osaze, who participated in three AFCON tournaments during his career, believes that Nigeria has what it takes to emerge victorious in the upcoming match.
Despite acknowledging the strength of the hosts, Ivory Coast, Osaze highlighted the quality of players within the Nigerian squad and their collective character as key factors that could lead them to victory.
