Former Super Eagles player and coach Samson Siasia has ruled out the chances of Gernot Rohr’s team claiming the 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt this summer.

Samson Siasia who was part of the Eagles winning squad in 1994 commended Gernot Rohr led team for what they have done and doing with the young team.

But he dismissed their chances of winning the title because the team is not yet a formidable team.

“The teams handlers are doing a great job with a very young team.
