AFCON 2021: Kanu Nwankwo reveals which team might win the Tournament


Super Eagles managed to defeat 7-time AFCON Champions in a thrilling and entertaining fixture.

The Pharoahs gave it their all till the last minute but the Nigerian Backline perfected their job as well as Okoye, Super Eagles Goal keeper.

Kelechi Iheanacho’s 30th minute stunner was wnough to seal the game for the Super Eagles and Nigeria’s soccer Legend, former Arsenal and Super Eagles player, Kanu Nwankwo reacted to this on Social Media.

Not long after the Super Eagles won their match, Kanu Nwankwo took to Instagram and congratulates the boys for their win.

In his Instagram post, Kanu wrote “One is gone, the game is coming. That is how we are going to do it, the same way and then winning. The Cup is definitely coming back.”


Taking his comment “The Cup is coming Back” into account, Kanu Nwankwo believes that the Super Eagles have what it takes to bring the African Cup o Nations title home.

It’s been over a decade since the Super Eagles won the trophy, it’s a good start for them – picking up the win against Egypt.

Kanu Nwankwo was not part of the squad that won the title back in 1994 though players like Jay Jay Okocha, Rashidi Yekini, Samson Siasia, Daniel Amokachi, Emmanuel Amuneke, Victor Ikpeba, Finidi George, Stephen Keshi etc were present, this was the first time the Super Eagles won the trophy away from home.


The Super Eagles of Nigeria will go on to face Sudan on Saturday, if they wish to secure a top 2 finish from their group, this should be an easy task for them.

However, Mo Salah’s Pharaohs will seek redemption for the loss to the Super Eagles when they take on Guinea-Bissau.

I do predict that Both the Egyptian Pharaohs and the Nigerian Super Eagles will pick up the victory and possibly finish at the top of Group D.
