Former Nigeria forward, Segun Odegbami (MON), yesterday, delivered a powerful speech to the Super Eagles ahead of their final Africa Cup of Nations group game against Guinea Bissau.

The Nigerian football legend expressed his support for the Super Eagles to win the title, praising them for their display against host nation, Cote d’Ivoire, singling out Ola Aina for his masterful display in the game.
Odegbami encouraged the players and expressed his belief in the team to go all the way.

“I believe that you are winning it,” said the 1980 AFCON winner. “I have not done this before; I am doing it because I believe it and I want you to believe it too. Not just believe by mouth, it’s the [belief] from inside – to go there now and start to play like champions because you are good.”

“And confidently, you can play it and I can see it. I saw one of the best and most masterful displays of the right-wing in Aina.

“That your last match, they should go and copy it and send it to every football school in the world who want to know how to play that position, look at how Aina played.

“He is masterful in determination and composure, you are just so absolutely brilliant and you can go on and on for all the players who are going to entertain us and who are going to win for us.”

For the game against Guinea Bissau, he noted that he does not expect the game to be easy.

“Look, I believe it. I am here to encourage you, to wish you well. I am going to watch you it’s going to be a tough match because that is how it is in our tradition.
