Africa and Cameroon football legend, Roger Milla, who was in the stands to watch the home-based Eagles thrash their West African neighbours; Niger 4-1 on Monday has tipped the team to go all the way at the CHAN 2016 tournament in Rwanda.
Speaking with Complete Sports in Kigali, Milla who is fondly remembered for his exploits at the Italia 90 World Cup submitted that Nigeria has a very good team which only needs little tweaking to fulfil their pre-tournament ratings.
“The Nigeria team is good. They have really good players and have a good chance of winning the title,” Milla submitted
“They were fantastic in the second half and I love the build-up to their goals.
“If they can work on some of their mistakes, like starting the game slowly, then I see them winning the competition,” the lethal forward in his days added.
Have ran through Niger, the Eagles will hope to also soar past Tunisia in their second group game against Tunisia on Friday.
