Why Super Eagles Will Have An Easy Run At The 2019 AFCON

There are suggestions that three-time African Cup of Nations (AFCON) champions Super Eagles will have an easy run in the 2019 AFCON following the draws that held on Friday.

Nigeria have been drawn to play Guinea and debutants Madagascar and Burundi in Group B of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt

Suggestions are that the group stage will be easy for the Nigerian side until they land in the knock out stage.

All of the countries are ranked below the Super Eagles and this gives the team an edge.

However, the last time the Eagles competed at the tournament in 2013, they  emerged champions but were absent in the last two editions in 2015 and 2017.

The Eagles first won the AFCON title in 1980 on home soil before Dutchman, Clemens Westerhof , led the country’ s golden generation to another triumph in 1994 in Tunisia.
