“The expectations is for the Eagles to go far, even as far as winning the cup, it won’t be easy but I believe they have the quality to do it”
“There are many quality teams now in the continent that are very strong….. You talk about Egypt, Morocco, Senegal etc”
“These countries are very strong, but I believe that with the quality of players we have, we can do it.
