Ahmed Musa is delighted to see the Super Eagles drawn in a somewhat easy Group B of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, but he also reckons it won’t be a walk in the park, Completesports.com reports.
The three-time AFCON winners who missed the last two editions were pooled alongside debutants Burundi, Madagascar and Guinea in Group B.
Musa has scored six times for Al Nassr so far this term however admits that the AFCON 2019 matches will not be easy for the Super Eagles despite finishing as group winners during the qualifying series.
“I feel very happy with the draw,” Musa said in a skype interview with Supersport monitored by Completesports.com after the draw in Egypt.
“We have a good group no doubt, but with these new teams in our group, it won’t be easy for the Super Eagles.”
“It has not been easy missing out on the last two editions, but we are back now. The Super Eagles have a young squad, but I am confident we can achieve something.”
“The qualifiers were good preparation for us. We will have more preparations before the tournament proper.”
