AFCON: We can’t afford to underrate Guinea-Bissau, says Eguaveon

Super Eagles handler, Austin Eguaveon says, it’s important to end the Group phase with another victory against Guinea-Bissau.

Nigeria will clash with the lowly rated opponents in the final game of the Group and Eguaveon hinted that’s, it’s important they keep on their winning streak.


Nigeria has 100 percent record in the competition so far — after beating Egypt and Sudan.

“We can’t underrate a team who gave Pharaohs of Egypt a run for their money and mind you, has chances to qualify too. It’s going to be a very competitive match”. He said.

“It’s going to be easy, but we do hope to win and get prepared for next stage of the competition”.

Meanwhile, Eguavoen is the only Super Eagles coach to win all three matches in the group phase of the AFCON since the country started participating at this level since 1963.

He achieved the feat when the Eagles defeated Ghana 1-0, Zimbabwe 2-0 and Senegal 2-1 at the Al Masry Stadium at the 2006 finals in Egypt and a win against Guinea-Bissau on Wednesday will see him equal the record.
