Former Super Eagles’ goalkeeper, Joseph Dosu has stated emphatically that the Nigerian national team has what it takes to emerge winners of this year’s Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Although many critics are of a view that the Eagles are not well-stocked to pull of their fourth conquest of the continental soccer diadem, Dosu insists the quality of players in Nigeria’s team are evocative of champs’ stuff.
Dosu, who was forced into early retirement after a car accident on the very night he helped Nigeria qualify for France ’98 World Cup, said the form being displayed by many of the Eagles’ stars at the clubs should translate into heroics for the entire squad at Egypt 2019.
The former Julius Berger FC of Lagos and Regianna of Italy shot-stopper, who is now a successful players’ representative, however, went on to add emphatically during a chat with Mega Sports radio programme on Star 101.5 FM, Lagos that the Eagles need proper preparations to excel.
Dosu stated: “We have a good team, quality set of players that can get to the final in Egypt and even win the cup.
“However, we also have to note that other countries that have qualified also want to win the trophy.
“So, it will be all about how well we prepare. It has to be about having the best plan and good preparations before going to the competition.
“All our players are doing well with their clubs and winning trophies, like Henry Onyekuru last weekend.
“They are ready to play well and win, but it has to be about getting good preparations as well. Can we win the competition? Yes we can.”
