There has been a lot of criticism of the Super Eagles’ preparations for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations. From the team announcement to camping, there has been a perceived laxity as the three-time African champions seek to improve on their third-place finish at the last edition. Players and coaches have already arrived in Garoua ahead of the tournament, yet to play a single warm-up game. Nigeria’s first AFCON group game will be against favourites Egypt next Tuesday at the Roumde Adjia Stadium. They will then play Sudan and Guinea-Bissau on January 15 and January 19, respectively.
