SUPER EAGLES’ ROUND OF 16 OPPONENTS EMERGE TODAY

BY KUNLE SOLAJA

The technical crew as well as the players of the Super Eagles of Nigeria will have their attention on matches in Suez and Ismailia to know which of the trio of Benin, Ghana and Guinea Bissau in Group F will be their opponents in Saturday’s Round of 16 encounter in the Africa Cup of Nations.

In Ismailia, Benin will face group leaders, Cameroon while Guinea Bissau and Ghana square off in Suez. 

Benin and Ghana are joint second on all parameters, but Ghana are more likely to finish second in the group considering that they have a potentially easier tie.  Barring upset, a more likely win by Ghana takes their point haul to five. Benin on the other hand have a more herculean task against Cameroon who require just a point to remain top of the group
