Victor Ikpeba, a former Nigerian forward, has revealed that the Super Eagles are not the strongest team in African football right now.
He revealed this on Supersports’ Monday Night Football Program, when he blamed the team’s loss in the first round at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos on individual mistakes by the players.
The Super Eagles overcame the Central African Republic on Sunday to avenge their humiliating loss to the Les Fauves in the reverse leg of the 2022 World Cup qualifier. Leon Balogun and Victor Osimhen both scored a goal.
If the Super Eagles want to qualify for the knockout stages, the Atlanta Olympic gold medallist also remarked that they now have their destiny in their own hands against Cape Verde.

“I’m glad the players responded well by defeating Central African Republic,” said the coach (CAR). In the rematch, I don’t think we played as a team since the players were playing as individuals.
“We don’t have a team that can dominate African football, but we do have a team that can qualify for the World Cup.”
