“But it is not about talking, we need to do it on the pitch, we need to stay focused and not get too carried away, we do that, stay humble and work hard hopefully we can achieve our potential.”

He added, “Honestly, there is no one team that has a divine right to the AFCON. Everyone is concerned, we have already seen upsets happen already so just because you have big names and big teams, it’s the AFCON. Anyone can beat anyone, so we have to show everyone respect and I’m sure other teams are showing us respect. We’ll see who wins.”

The kick-off time for Nigeria vs Tunisia is 8 pm.
