Samuel Kalu Confident Of AFCON 2021 Victory

Super Eagles winger, Samuel Kalu, says he's optimistic the team will pick the maximum point in during the African Cup of Nations in Egypt to lift the trophy.

Nigeria defeated Libya 4-0 on Saturday to move second on the table, one point behind leaders, South Africa that walloped Seychelles 6-0.

Kalu, who scored a beautiful goal in Nigeria's win over Libya, reiterated that the team is ready to pick back-back win on Tuesday.

"We are definitely going into that match with a mindset of getting all three points," the Bordeaux star revealed on Monday.

"We will approach the match with the same aggressive way like we did in Uyo. It’s not going to be easy because the Libyans want to respond to their heavy loss but am confident we will get the right result.

"The good thing is that we got all three points, that is more important than my personal performance. I am still learning and working really hard with the help of the coaches. Getting better is my aim and hard work is the surest way to go about it.

“I’m not selfish but the area of the pitch where I occupied was not level so I need to be sure of a pass or shot. When I got used to certain areas was close to when I scored. My career has been more about assist than scoring goals."
