Super Eagles and GENK striker Paul Onuachu says Nigeria can win the next Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon next year.
The Super Eagles’ place in the competition was confirmed on Saturday, shortly before they edged the Benin Republic 1-0 at the Stade Charles De Gaulle in Port Novo.
Onuachu was the hero as he came off the bench to scored the winning goal in the 93rd minute against the Squirrels, but the goalless draw between Lesotho and Sierra Leone in the other Group L fixture in Maseru means the result against the Benin Republic is inconsequential.
Gernot Rohr’s men finished third at the 2019 AFCON in Egypt, but the KRC Genk forward who is excited breaks his duck against the Squirrels believes they can two-step further in Cameroon.
“It’s a lot of confidence for a striker to score and I’m very happy. We just have to go there (to the AFCON) and take the gold,” he said in a video shared via Super Eagles social media handle after the game.
