Former Nigeria international, Gbenga Okunowo has confessed that the Super Eagles will not have any problem qualifying from their group during the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
Okunowo noted that the three teams in the group will not pose any problems to the Eagles. He told Goal.com that there is a huge advantage going for the team and they will use that opportunity to beat Zambia, Burkina Faso and Ehtiopia.
"I want to say that the Super Eagles will not have any problem going out from that group as leaders. I have seen and looked at the three countries in the same group with them and have concluded that they will be the team to beat," Okunowo said.
"I am not underrating the three countries in that group including the defending champions. But whoever says there are no minnows in football is not saying the truth.
"The good thing is that the Super Eagles are preparing very well and there is no way anybody will say they have not done what they are supposed to do.
"Look at the type of players at the disposal of Stephen Keshi. Not every coach in Africa will have such a priveledge. So you can understand why I said they will qualify easily.
"So they have all to play at the Africa Cup of Nations. I am supremely confident that they will move to the second round of the competition.
"From the second round, anything can happen but don't expect the Super Eagles to exit the tournament in the group stages," the former Barcelona defender boasted.
