Victor Ikpeba, a former Nigeria striker, claims that the Super Eagles are not the strongest side in Africa right now.
In response to the team’s uneven results in recent 2022 World Cup qualifying matches, Ikpeba declared this.
The three-time African champions were stunned 1-0 at home by the Central African Republic before prevailing 2-0 in Douala, Cameroon three days later.
Despite winning Group C and appearing to be on track to progress to the next round, Ikpeba is concerned that Nigeria will not be able to dominate African football.
“I have always said that this team can win the Nations Cup but we are not the best when it comes to African Football right now.
“At this point, we have to beat Cape Verde because the destiny is in our hands.
“We don’t have the team to dominate African football but we have the team to qualify for the World Cup,” he said.
