Former Nigeria International Julius Aghahowa has urged the present Super Eagles players to be ready because they are not going to have it easy in Ivory Coast.
Aghahowa made the statement while speaking to NAN about the upcoming African Cup of Nations slated for January.
He said, every country on the continent is aware of the potential of the Nigerian players and urged them to be physically and mentally prepared.
” The players are in Europe which is easier because everybody is playing the same style, but coming to Africa to play and vie for major tournaments like World Cup qualifiers or AFCON, we are not going to have it easy.
“Our players need to have it at the back of their minds that it will be difficult to match and be well prepared. Once they sort that out, the rest will be history.
“The players can do it, and I believe in them, but that commitment and resilience the game is a must-win should be added to their mentality,” he said.
