Segun Odegbami predicts two countries to reach the final of the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations
EKO HOT BLOG reports that Ex-Nigeria international, Segun Odegbami, has predicted two countries that will reach the final of the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON.
Odegbami predicted that Nigeria and Cameroon would play the final of the ongoing AFCON come February 6.
This online media platform recalls that Recall that the two African giants have met at the grand finale of the continental championship three times, with the Lions claiming the win on each occasion
Both Cameroon and Nigeria have booked their place at the AFCON round of 16 after winning their first two games.
Cameroon defeated Burkina Faso 2-1 on the opening day before thrashing Ethiopia 4-1 on match-day two.
Nigeria, on the other hand, defeated Egypt 1-0 and won 3-1 against Sudan.
Odegbami, Afcon’s top goalscorer when Nigeria claimed her first continental honours 42 years ago, is convinced no team can stop the two bitter rivals until they meet each other, possibly in the final.
He said, “So far, the Eagles may not have played the best brand of football,” Odegbami told Complete Sports.
“But with the range of talent in the team now, and Augustine Eguavoen’s ability to deploy them the way he did in the first match, it is not difficult to assume that at the ‘tape’, Nigeria and Cameroon are likely to be the two teams still standing to battle it out in a photo-finish.
“That is my prediction.”
Cameroon’s Vincent Aboubakar is presently the leading goalscorer at the Afcon, with four goals in two games.
Nigeria’s Kelechi Iheanacho has one, but he could become the first Nigerian to score in his first two Africa Cup of Nations appearances since Emmanuel Emenike in 2013 when the Eagles clash with Sudan in Garoua later today.
