“What happened in the match against Burkina Faso will not repeat itself. We are going to take our chances in the next game.
“I know that everything will work well for us on Friday because we need to win that game to put our Nations Cup participation on a sound footing.
“I can see us smiling home with the trophy at the end of the day because we have a team that can win the ultimate prize for the third time,” he said during Tuesday’s evening training session.
Information Nigeria reports that the Chelsea midfielder was voted man of the match in the opening game against Burkina Faso while they hope to record their first win against defending champions, Zambia on Friday.
