Former Super Eagles star Victor Ikpeba has reacted to the draws for the 2019 African Cup of Nations.
Nigeria were placed in Group B, alongside Guinea, Madagascar and Burundi.
The former Monaco star has urged the Super Eagles not to look down on any team in the group, adding that Gernot Rohr’s men will easily qualify if they approach the games with the right attitude.
“We have a decent group, but we should not look down on any team,” he said.
“If the Super Eagles players will go to Egypt with a business-mindset to get the job done, we will qualify from the group with ease”
Ikpeba is no stranger to the African Cup of Nations having won it in 1994.
He has also faced massive disappointment in the competition after his penalty (which crossed the line) in the 2000 final against Cameroon was adjudged to have not crossed the line after he reacted in a manner that suggested he missed the spot kick.
The Super Eagles last won the AFCON trophy in 2013 and will be hoping to win a fourth this year.

In Alex Iwobi, Wilfred Ndidi, Ahmed Musa, and Odion Ighalo, Gernot Rohr can boast of some of the top players in African football. With these players, the Super Eagles will be a force in Egypt.
Paul Onuachu is also another player that could light up the Africa Cup of Nations. The 24-year-old is a prolific goal-scorer and got the only goal when the Super Eagles defeated Egypt in an international friendly in March.
