Abbey speaks on Nigeria’s chances in AFCON 2023

Sports Brief earlier reported that former Super Eagles defender, George Abbey spoke on Nigeria's chances of winning the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast next year.

In a recent interview, Abbey stated the current Super Eagles are not strong enough to win Africa's biggest football tournament next year, according to a report by The Punch.

"We are patriotic as a country; we forget to check the present weather forecast. This current team is not as strong as our 2013 squad and in my opinion, that team overachieved based on the team they were up against," he said.
