AFCON 2021: Augustine Eguavoen Calls For Support From Fans Ahead Knockout Stage

The Super Eagles have qualified for the knockout rounds, but any mistake could get the three-time Champions knocked out

Super Eagles interim boss Augustine Eguavoen has called on support from fans ahead of the knockout stages at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

Nigeria qualified for the round of 16 after their comprehensive 3-1 victory over Sudan on Saturday.

The Super Eagles sent a message to the rest of their rivals in their first game against Egypt. The three-time African champions outclassed the Pharaohs to secure a 1-0 win.

Nigeria face Guinea-Bissau on Wednesday, but it is an inconsequential fixture, as they are already sure of a first-place finish in the group.

This is the second time that the AFCON has 24 teams, and as such there the knockout stages will begin with a round of sixteen playoffs.

And ahead of the knockout games, Eguavoen has called on the fans to show their support. The former Gent defender took to his official Twitter account to seek the fans support.

Nigeria will play their round of 16 fixture on the 23rd of January, and they could face the third-best team in either group Group B, E or F.
