Nigeria tipped to reach the 2021 AFCON final 

Austin Okocha has backed his former team Super Eagles to reach the finals of the Africa of Cup Nations. 

Nigeria was the only team to advance to the last 16 having won all their three Group stage matches. The Super Eagles beat Egypt, Sudan and Guinea-Bissau scoring six goals while conceding only one in the process. 

Okocha believes Nigeria have the talents that can reach the final of the Africa Cup of Nations. 

"I am really impressed with the general performance of the Super Eagles against Guinea-Bissau despite playing the second team," said Okocha. 

"This shows that Eguavoen is blessed with an array of talents that are capable of reaching the final if well utilized." 

The Super Eagles will meet the best loser from either Group B, E or F.
