According to reports monitored on the verified Twitter handle of the Confederation of African Football.
Former Super Eagles midfielder, Mutiu Adepoju had expressed optimism on the Super Eagles doing very well in the forth coming Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt in June.
The ex-international disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria on Saturday, while reacting to the AFCON draws which took place Friday night in Cairo.
NAN reports that the Super Eagles are drawn in Group B with Guinea, Madagascar and Burundi, a group analysts have described as relatively easy.
Adepoju, however, stressed that the Super Eagles would need to prepare well and play as a team to go far in the competition.
