Former Nigerian forward, Julius Aghahowa has urged the duo of Super Eagles strikers, Taiwo Awoniyi and Sadiq Umar to grab their chances at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

Both players are expected to lead the Super Eagles attack in the absence of Victor Osimhen and Odion Ighalo, who have been prevented by their clubs to play in Cameroon.

The three-time AFCON champions will face the Pharaohs of Egypt on January 11 before tackling Guinea-Bissau and Sudan respectively.

“Those players are professionals and they are playing in their teams in Europe. And that is what is expected of them when you are called to represent your country, you have to give in your best.

“You have to prove that you are worthy of that call. So now, the opportunity lies in the shoulder of Taiwo Awoniyi and Sadiq Umar.”
