Former Nigeria international Edema Fuludu has warned the Super Eagles not to get complacent, after their impressive win against Egypt.
The Austine Eguavoen-led side outclassed Egypt that paraded Liverpool star forward Mohamed Salah in their Group D opener on Tuesday.
Kelechi Iheanacho bagged the only goal of the game with a superb first half goal.
Up next for the Eagles is a second group game against Sudan on Saturday.
And ahead of the weekend game Fuludu, a member of the Eagles’ 1994 AFCON winning squad, urged the team not to get carried away.
“When we start well like this complacency sets in, lackadaisical attitude can also set in,” Fuludu said on Brila FM.
“When it comes to the level when we are suppose to perform we no longer perform and that is the bane of our Super Eagles.
“So I pray sincerely that it does not occur again, that we should be mindful of those teams that are not in the league of the likes of Egypt, Algeria, Cameroon and Morocco. Sudan and Guinea-Bissau can become another issue for the Eagles and I just hope we put up a five star performance.”
