West gives Eagles little chance at Afcon



Former Nigerian international, Taribo West has voiced out his sentiments that the Super Eagles of Nigeria would not emerge Champions at the 2013 Nations cup in South Africa.

Taribo who was part of the Nigerian Olympic football team that won gold at the Atlanta 1996 disclosed that a lot of rationale would prevent Keshi and his men from lifting the championship next Year.

The Clergyman had earlier revealed on December 16 while celebrating with the Nigeria's Super Sand Eagles on their 8-7 victory over Portugal at the second edition of the Copa Lagos Beach Soccer championship, and the big defender has now reiterated his opinion.

“I am saying this because the Super Eagles would need another two years to become a better team as they are at present under re-rebuilding process which will be difficult for them to win any major trophy.

“I have watched them at close quarters and noticed that they are a bunch that wants to succeed at all times, but sincerely speaking, I don't see them as champions at the 2013 Africa cup of Nations.

“They will do their best in the tournament and they will create enough upsets, but they will not win the Trophy.

“Not because they are not good, but it will take them another two years of consistent hard work and I am looking forward to see the super Eagles getting their hands on the trophy in the next edition of the tournament,” West explained.

The Super Eagles are in group C and they will face title holders, Zambia, Ethiopia and Burkina Faso.
