Super Eagles coach, Austin Eguavoen is not carried away by the general high ratings pundits are giving to his team, even as they face lowly rated Guinea Bissau this night in Garoua, Cameroon.

If he achieves success in this tournament in which he is merely a ‘caretaker’ coach, he will not just like Egypt’s Mahmoud El-Gohary and Nigeria’s Stephen Keshi as men to have won the Africa Cup of Nations as players and later as coaches, Eguavoen will be taking a step further as one who has been on all shades of podium.Third-place on the podium as a coach in 2006, runners-up as a player in 1988 and on-field captain as cup winners in 1994.In his remarks, he said: “We will continue to work. We respect our opponents and will continue on the same path.

“We must improve and take advantage of opportunities and score more goals. There will be changes in the squad, but we will not underestimate the match. All the players here are able to participate and represent Nigeria strongly.”
