Super Eagles 50303

Zimbabwe national team coach, Sunday Chidzambwa, has picked Chelsea legend John Obi Mikel and Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi as two of the best players in the Super Eagles camp ahead of the African Cup of Nations in Egypt.

He also noted that the Super Eagles will qualify for the knockout rounds of the competition.

"There are very good players in the team, the likes of Iwobi, Mikel. They have youngsters, they have a very good team and they stand a chance in the final," he told press conference.

"Both countries want to qualify. On our part we will try to get past the group stages, since we started this AFCON campaign we haven't gone past the group stages but we are going to try to get past the group stages.

"I think the Super Eagles are in an easier group, they are seeded too and with their play they will be able to go past the group stages," he added.

Nigeria will face Burundi, Guinea and Madagascar in Group B of the 2019 AFCON.
