Kanu confidently predicts that the Super Eagles are destined to clinch the AFCON trophy


Nigerian football icon, Nwankwo Kanu, confidently predicts the Super Eagles’ victory in the 2023 CAF African Cup of Nations.

In a recent video on his X account, the two-time African Footballer of the Year expresses his belief that the Nigerian team, currently poised for a semi-final showdown with South Africa’s Bafana Bafana, will not only progress to the final but also clinch the championship.

Known as ‘Papilo,’ the Arsenal legend encourages unwavering support for the team, emphasizing the historic significance of potentially bringing the trophy back home after its last win in 2019.

The semi-final clash is set to take place at the Stade de la Paix in Bouake, marking the fourth tournament encounter between Nigeria and South Africa, with the Eagles winning the previous three games. Kick-off is scheduled for 6 p.m. Nigerian time.

After overcoming Cameroon and Angola in the round of 16 and quarterfinals, respectively, the Super Eagles aim to secure their path to the finals, echoing Kanu’s optimism and rallying the nation behind their quest for glory.
