Former Super Eagles defensive midfielder Justice Christopher has backed the Super Eagles of Nigeria to be in contention up until at least the semi final at the Africa cup of nations which starts tomorrow in Egypt.
Christopher speaking in a chat with www.brila.net said he is so sure of the ability of the team to succeed in Egypt and stressed that the Eagles have no excuse or reason not to qualify out of the group stage and should proceed beyond the quarter final stage at the nations cup.
“For me I think the Eagles have a better chance. We have good players and I know they have what it takes.
For me, I don’t think Egypt will win the tournament. I think this title is coming to West Africa and likely Nigeria will be the team to win it.”
