The assistant coach of the Super Eagles and head coach of U 23 believes the 2019 AFCON draw is fair, but at the same time tricky. Noting that any team in the tournament must have work harder to be to qualify.
Speaking with Footballlive.ng on Nigeria’s chances, Amapakabo said, “We can not be carried away by the pedigree of these team on paper, we need to prepare very well to have a meaningful tournament in Cairo”. “We are the Arrow head of the group on paper, we must demonstrate that in the field of play”.
“We can not talk about the trophy first, we must qualify from the group and proceed to the knock out stage”.
