"It's a tough group for Nigeria. Egypt is a very high-level opponent, which we will face in the first game. Sudan will be an opponent to take seriously, and their French coach, Hubert Velud, has been doing a good job in Africa for years. Also watch out for Guinea-Bissau. Nigeria will be aiming to get out of this group. We will have to be in full possession of our means to be ready for the first match on 11 June against Egypt. We will have to make a good preparation. We are confident and we want to go as far as possible in this competition.''
