The Super Eagles star, Alex Iwobi has given his backing to the 24-team Africa Cup of Nations which is made up of six groups.
Iwobi added that Africa’s flagship tournament will keep growing because the continent is blessed with quality players.
For the first time in the championship, 24 teams are battling for the top prize after the Confederation of African Football expanded the competition for this year’s finals in Egypt.
According to the Nigerian international star, who is featuring at Afcon for the first time, this setup for the competition shares the African experience with the world and showcases the continent’s abundant talents?
“The competition is very difficult and it is not easy when every team that is involved is doing well”.
“There are a lot of players not just playing in Africa but foreign-based as well. It shows that there is good quality coming from Africa.
“Even from my experience in the Premier League, three African players won the Golden Boot and that shows there is a lot of quality in Africa.
“And so, it is good for Africa to be globally recognized and maybe the next stage is the World Cup where one African team can win it one day.”
