Dele Ajiboye: Super Eagles are strong favourites to win 2013 AFCON

Nigerians have been charged to start celebrating the country's third success at the Africa's biennial competition after impressive wins over Ivory Coast and Mali

Former Nigeria U-23 goalkeeper, Oladele Ajiboye has informed that the Super Eagles would win against Burkina Faso on Sunday in the final of 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

Ajiboye who confessed he predicted the Eagles would get this far said the country’s representatives have got a better understanding of one another and should be able to make mincemeat of the Burkinabes on Sunday.

He however cautioned that the players should not be complacent at this stage but should approach the final game with the same level of seriousness they have applied to the games with Ivory Coast and Mali if they want to win the cup.

Ajiboye who was in the Golden Eaglets squad that won the FIFA U-17 World Cup in Korea Republic in 2007 affirmed that having gone to the final the Eagles could not afford to lower their guard against their West African counterparts.
"What did I tell you before the match,” Ajiboye asked.

"Even though Nigerians did not believe in the Eagles before the game against Cote D'Ivoire I told those that cared to listen that we would beat the Ivorians and later on get to the final.

"All my predictions have come to pass now and the remaining one-the final encounter against Burkina Faso is also going the way of Nigeria. The players have peaked and nothing can stop them from lifting the title on Sunday," he concluded.

Ajiboye is now the first choice goalkeeper of former Nigeria league champions, Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) of Ibadan after some stints in Spain.
