Former Real Madrid midfielder, Mutiu Adepoju, has predicted that the Super Eagles will overcome Sudan when both teams clash at the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Group D fixture on Saturday.
Adepoju said Sudan will want to frustrate Augustine Eguavoen’s men but insisted the Falcons of Jediane will fail.
Sudan heads to the game following a 0-0 draw against Guinea-Bissau in their first game on Tuesday, while Nigeria defeated Egypt 1-0.
“Super Eagles has what it takes to take care of Sudan,” Adepoju told Brila FM.
“I am sure they [Sudan] will want to frustrate the Super Eagles having seen their performance against Egypt. But I think Sudan will fall.”
Both Nigeria and Sudan have met 14 times in the past.
The Super Eagles have won eight times, drawn four and lost just twice to Sudan.
The kick-off time for the game between Nigeria and Sudan is 5 pm.
