Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro on Monday, said the Nigerian national team can win a fourth Africa Cup of Nations trophy despite a difficult group.

The tournament will be taking place in Ivory Coast starting January 14 with Nigeria one of the favourites.

Nigeria last won the AFCON title in 2013 in South Africa.

The Super Eagles face a tough first-round group with Ivory Coast, Equatorial Guinea and Guinea-Bissau.

However, Peseiro maintained that he is optimistic about Nigeria’s chances.

Peseiro in an interview with NFF TV said, “We will fight to win the Africa Cup even though it won’t be easy.

“Our group is not easy because we are up against the Ivory Coast, who have a good squad and are playing at home.

“We have to be at our best in our training and our matches.”

The Nigerian team gathers this week in Abu Dhabi for a training camp before the tournament.

They kick off action on January 14 against Equatorial Guinea.
