AFCON 2019: Former Nigeria keeper Shorunmu confident in Super Eagles

Former Super Eagles goalkeeper Ike Shorunmu has expressed confidence in the Nigeria team ahead of their AFCON 2019 Round of 16 fixture against Cameroon.

Shorunmu is sure the Super Eagles will approach Saturday's game with all seriousness to avoid a repeat of what happened against Madagascar.

“Everything depends on the philosophy of the players on the pitch,” starts the one time Grasshoppers of Switzerland shot stopper.

“It’s about what they want to achieve and how they want to react after the Madagascar defeat that has drawn some flakes against the team.

“But I’m sure the boys are hungry to give Cameroon a good match following their poor result against Madagascar.

“We are all Nigerians, so are the players. They know the importance of victory over Cameroon, not just for the team, not just for the country but their careers as well.

“For me, yes, Eagles are good to win”.

Shorunmu was in goal at AFCON 2000 in Lagos when the Super Eagles met the Indomitable Lions in the AFCON final that was decided on penalties.

He was on the bench in 1992 in Senegal, in same competition when Super Eagles prevailed 2-0.
