Super Eagles  interim head coach Austine  Eguavoen says the three-time champions are still not the favourites to win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in despite the rave reviews following their opening day victory.

The Eagles got off to a flying start with a deserved 1-0 win over the Egypt on Tuesday. 

“It won’t be easy, we first want to win (vs Sudan) to secure a place in the Round of 16, like Cameroon did,”Eguavoen  told a press conference ahead of the game.

“Sudan are no pushovers, so they will push harder. They will raise their game, but we will respond well.

“It won’t be easy like I said, but that’s our mission.

“All eyes on our target.

“We want to win every game, but we approach it game after game. We don’t expect every game to be smooth.”
