Nigeria striker Odion Ighalo says his country can win the Africa Cup of Nations as they prepare to kick-off their campaign against Burundi.
The Super Eagles, who last won the tournament in 2013, take on the Group B minnows in Alexandria on Saturday, hoping to take the first steps towards a fourth title.
The former Watford striker said in an interview with the Nigeria Football Federation: “If anybody says the tournament will be easy, it is a lie because it is going to be tough, it is going to be hot but I believe in the team we have. We have all it takes to do well at the Afcon.
“Nigeria has a good team that can play in the semi-final and the final. As I said, we will not get carried away.
“We have a team that can even win the trophy if we work hard and if we give everything we have on the pitch.”
