Nigerian defender Kenneth Omeruo is delighted to part of the current Super Eagles team and has tipped them to achieve more success in the future.
The Nigerians are one of the youngest sides in the competition, with most of the players appearing in their first African Cup of Nations, except for captain john Mikel Obi, Ahmed Musa and Kenneth Omeruo who were part of the team that won the tournament in South Africa back in 2013.
Speaking ahead of the semi-final clash with the Desert Foxes of Algeria , Omeruo who has been present in the heart of Gernot Rohr’men defense , said the present Nigerian side, is a team for the future.
“Back then, we had some of Nigeria’s best players, older players but now we have talents that in the next two to three years will become great players.
“But I think we have a solid technical crew that are solid and can go extra miles to get us everything we need to know about our opponents even before we face them which is an advantage to us.“
Omeruo who scored Nigeria‘s winning goal against Guinea in the second group game, added that three time African champions are leaving no stone unturned, as they continue preparations for the crunch game with Algerians.
“All efforts are being put into the Algerian game and hopefully wewill be ready tomorrow.”
“We are approaching this game with all seriousness because Nigeria are a very difficult team as well,” he told the media.
“We’ve been recovering for the last two days to ensure that everyone is ready and fit for this game and we are looking forward to it.“
Nigeria will take on Algeria at the Cairo international stadium, for a place in the final of the 2019 African Cup of Nations .
