By Saheed Afolabi


Angola head coach, Pedro Goncalves is jittery over the clinically and experienced Nigeria attackers in the 2023 Africa Cup Of Nations (AFCON).

Angola smashed Namibia 3-0 to reach the quarter final stage of the AFCON.

The gaffer said he admires Osimhen and voted for him during the FIFA best awards last year.

Goncalves admitted the Super Eagles is enriched with quality and mind blowing players that are capable of crushing any side.

“I myself, in the FIFA votes, also voted for him (Osimhen) as one of the best players in the world,” Goncalves was quoted by Sapo Desportovo.

“So we will play against a selection equipped with players with a lot of talent, who have tremendous, mind-blowing playing capacity, a lot of speed, especially derived from of the two forwards, Osimhen and Lookman, who, in fact, add great vertigo to the game.”

Nigeria will challenge Angola for a place at the last four of the 2023 AFCON on Friday, February second at the Stade de Felix, Abidjan.
