A former minister of Youth and Sports and a member of the Federal Government delegation to the Africa Cup of Nations, Solomon Dalung is optimistic that the Super Eagles will win the 2019 AFCON holding in Egypt.

Dalung who made his assertion after the Super Eagles defeated South Africa 2-1 to advance to the last 4 said, based on the team’s steady improvement in the African tournament, it will be difficult for any team to withstand the Super Eagles.


“Now that you’re in the semifinal, you will go all the way to the final. It has been a long but progressive journey in the tournament but now is the time to look into your armoury and set up strategies for the next game which won’t be easy. The games will get tougher as you progress but with the right mentality, you will emerge champions.

“Our President Muhammadu Buhari has taken time out to watch some of your matches as your number one supporter and you can be rest assured that all you need to bring back the trophy has been provided for you.”
