Dike backs Eagles, Emenike



Portland Timbers striker Bright Dike has tipped the Super Eagles to be crowned African champions and striker Emmanuel Emenike to emerge as the goal king of the tournament.

Dike, who was sensationally left out of Africa Cup of Nations final 23-man squad, will back his cousin Emenike to become the highest scorer in the tournament.

The Spartak Moscow striker is among the competition’s leading scorers with three goals. Others on three goals are Alain Traore (Burkina Faso) and Mubarak Wakaso (Ghana).

"Emenike is a candidate for top goal scorer at the Nations Cup. If the team as whole keep playing well, he will get his goals, and right now momentum is in Nigeria's favour, so I see him scoring enough goals to give him the award," Dike predicted.

"I knew Emenike will do well and I expect nothing less than what he is doing from him.

“I am so happy for him and I hope the Eagles lift the cup."

Nigeria have won the Nations Cup twice, in 1980 on home soil and in 1994 in Tunisia.
