Eagles midfielder says best yet to come

21 January 2014, 12:49Israel Ojoko

Cape Town - Emerging Super Eagles midfield star, Abdulahi Shehu says the best is yet to be seen of the team as the African Nations Championship progresses.

Shehu, who was elated at seeing Nigeria beat host South Africa 3-1, declared that the team will be better in the knock out stages of the competition.

Team’s media officer, Ben Alaiya quotes the Kano Pillars middleman as saying: “tell them they have not seen anything yet, we are here for nothing but the trophy and we have shown that with our game against South Africa.

“But I must say that is not our best match, the games ahead will show our true quality”.

Shehu, who has been described by his injured team mates duo of Benjamin Francis and Ikenna Paul as the heart of the CHAN Eagles, said he was prepared to justify the huge confidence reposed in him by his teammates and the technical crew in the coming games and was sure to do the nation proud at the end of the tournament.
