As Nigeria targets a fourth title in Cote d’Ivoire, Ideye shared his views during a Twitter space discussion ahead of the 2023 edition kickoff this weekend.

“We have good players in camp, but we don’t have a team. We are still building a team because we don’t have a team that can win the AFCON,” Ideye remarked.

The 28-cap Nigerian International added “I don’t see this present Eagles winning this AFCON; it’s not possible. We are not ready; we don’t have what it takes.”

“They should all gather in the room of Ahmed Musa and discuss with him and Kenneth Omeruo. They need Musa and Omeruo to tell them how we conquered Africa in 2013.

“The discipline, the sacrifices, and how we fought and tasked ourselves when everyone have given up on Ideye said per 54footballx.
