Mikel still confident for Eagles



Super Eagles’ midfielder, John Mikel Obi, has said his side are capable of winning the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

Nigeria's Super Eagles earned an uninspiring 1-1 draw in Group C opener against the Stallions of Burkina Faso in Nelspruit on Monday and face a more daunting force in the Chipolopolo of Zambia in a must-win tie on Friday.

The reigning African champions, Zambia were held to a 1-1 draw by less-fancied Walya Antelopes of Ethiopia in their first game.

The Chelsea midfield maestro said he is already dreaming of the Afcon trophy after a long spell without a trophy for the two-time African champions.

“We may have drawn our first game against Burkina Faso but we need to settle down, forget it and concentrate on the next games against Zambia and Ethiopia. I can see us smiling home with the trophy at the end,” he said.

Similarly, Eagles’ striker, Brown Ideye has charged Nigerians to keep faith with the team as they are determined to ensure a good outing at the Afcon.

“We know the expectations are high but our opponents are not also sleeping, so Nigerians must be a little patient with the team,” he said.
