Former Nigeria forward Raphael Chukwu-Ndukwe has described the Super Eagles outing at the 2019 Africa cup of nations as good and far above average after the team picked up the tournament’s Bronze medal.

A solitary goal from Odion Ighalo in the third minute earned the Eagles a 1-0 win over Tunisia’s Carthage Eagles.

 

Chukwu-Ndukwe told footballlive.ng that the tournament will serve the young Eagles team valuable experience moving forward and expects the team to get even better.

 

He also backed Ighalo to end the tournament as top scorer after hitting goal number 5 in the win against Tunisia; which took him 2 goals ahead of closest challenger Sadio Mane on 3 goals.

 

“I think it’s a good outing for them especially because the last time we played this competition many of the current players were not there except about 3 players.

“So it’s a very good show for them and now that they have experience, they will be better prepared next time. I believe he will win the golden boot just like he did during the qualifiers.”
