3 Reasons Why Nigeria Might Win The CAF African Cup Of Nations Trophy

The Super Eagles of Nigeria managed to secure a slot in the first knock-out stage of the ongoing CAF African Cup Of Nations tournament. Nigeria finished top of Group D with nine points from three matches. The Super Eagles might end up winning this precious trophy because the following reasons.

Nigeria has been drawn to face a struggling side, Tunisia, in the Round of 16. Despite Tunisia being ranked the best national team in Africa by the recent FIFA rankings, they have struggled to showcase their qualities at the group stages. Nigeria may utilize this weakness to book a spot in the quarter-finals.

Another reason is that Nigeria doesn't depend on strikers to score goals. Their goals at the group stages have been distributed across all positions. Defenders, midfielders, and Strikers have all contributed to group stage-level goals.

Lastly, they have a good squad and hard-working players such as Simon Moses, who are willing to sacrifice more for the team.
