Lagos - Former Nigeria international Austin Eguavoen remains confident that the Super Eagles will qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations, despite what has been an inauspicious start to their campaign.
Nigeria currently occupy the third position in the Group A standings and are four points behind leaders South Africa. The Super Eagles are also three points behind Congo, who are in second position on the group standings.
However, Eguavoen thinks that the current squad has the capacity to book a trip to Africa's showpiece.
