Simon: Super Eagles Want To Rule Africa Again


Moses Simon hopes to win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations title with Nigeria.

The West Africans last ruled the continent in 2013 after lifting the title in South Africa.

The Super Eagles then failed to qualify for the next two editions in 2015 and 2017 before claiming third place on their return two years ago in Egypt.

Simon, who plays for Ligue 1 club Nantes is however aiming for the ultimate prize this time around.

“Actually, winning is the goal because the last one, we were third but right now we have to do everything possible to get a gold medal,” Simon told the Ligue 1 website.

“Whenever I am called up, I will give my best. It does not matter which position I play.

“If any coach says, ‘Hey, I want you to play as a goalkeeper because I believe in you’, I will stay in the goal.”

The Super Eagles will begin their campaign in Cameroon against Egypt at the Roumde Adija Stadium, Garoua on January 11

They will also face Guinea-Bissau and Sudan in their other group games.
