Egypt 2019: Odemwingie backs Super Eagles for AFCON Glory

Former Super Eagles forward, Peter Odemwingie has hailed the level of unity and commitment in the current crop of Super Eagles, saying they have become a united force.

Odemwingie, who spoke to brila.net shortly after the FIFA Women’s World Cup trophy tour in Abuja, stated categorically that the team has now drifted from individuality to a United front.


 

“Over the years, the Super Eagles have become more of a team. Team game and team effort rather than the individual play or big talent play of the past.

 

“It’s a solid team I must admit. The World Cup was alright, they were unlucky a bit against Argentina and should have gone beyond the first round,” Odemwingie said.

 

He, however, did not comment on the team’s chances in Egypt but believes they have a strong squad that can hold their own at the biannual tournament.

 

The former Lille of France forward featured for the country 63 times, netting 10 goals in the process including the winner against Bosnia at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil which earned Nigeria its first win since France’98.
