Despite the inconsistent performance of the team, the former Ivorian international Didier Drogba still believes the Super Eagles of Nigeria is a big team.
With the array of stars in the team, the Nigerian has not been impressive in their performance which makes the fans and followers of the game across the continent doubt their ability to make any meaningful impact in the upcoming African Cup of Nations.
But the former Chelsea striker maintained that with the Napoli striker Victor Osinhen in the team, Nigeria is capable of springing surprises.
“Nigeria, with Victor Osimhen and all the players they have, is a big team. We mustn’t forget the other two teams because there are always surprises.
“I think that our main asset will be to focus on our game, our team, our strengths and try to progress. It’s up to us to make the most of it, get behind our team and make sure the trophy stays at home”, he told BBC Africa Sports.
Despite playing at 5 AFCON competitions, Drogba never lifted the trophy.
