Umar Zango thinks Eagles can win CHAN

Kano Pillars stalwart in defence, Umar Zango has told that they can emerge victorious at the African Nations Championship, CHAN in South Africa next month.

Zango who has been seating it in camp with the rest of his mates says Nigeria has all about themselves to win the cup.

“Yes, we are in camp like you know and we have been working on our paces. The coaches have also been sweating it out with us, letting us know that we have a big task ahead of the competition,” Zango said.

“We have been preparing for this tournament since January and if you see us play, you will know that a lot of things have changed. We are playing much better football and that is because of the time we have spent together and the quality of coaching we get too.

“We also know we can win the Cup if we get our acts together. Some players have left but it still does not change a thing as we now have belief in ourselves that this thing is possible,” the Kano Pillars defender said.

Umar also told that coach of the side, Stephen Keshi has been a great influence on the lives and performances of the players in camp.

“Stephen Keshi is a good coach. The way he plays with us and encourages us, I must say he is a very nice person and we have all learned a lot from him,” Umar added.

The African Nations Championships, CHAN is a tournament amongst African countries but for players based in their home leagues.
