Super Eagles need fighting spirit - Amuneke
Former Nigerian international, Emmanuel Amuneke has expressed the need for Super Eagles to have a fighting spirit to excel at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations-AFCON, in South Africa.
Amuneke explained that every team at the Africa Cup of Nations would aim to defeat the Super Eagles.
He said Group C opponents, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia and African champions, Zambia would not be easy foes.
"No team will be easy foe at the Africa Cup of Nations. Same goes for the opponents of the Super Eagles.
Remember no one gave Zambia the chance of winning the Nations Cup earlier this year.
But they won it based on determination and good display of the game and also a bit of luck.
I must say that the Super Eagles will need more than just big names to do very well at the Nations Cup next year. The players and coaches will have to show they are ready to fight if they want to win the championship next year," Amuneke said.
Amuneke's two goals in the 1994 Nations Cup final helped Nigeria to their second African title with a 2-1 win over Zambia.
