Former Nigerian captain, Joseph Yobo has said he is not convinced with the Super Eagles’ 1-0 win over Guinea-Bissau in Monday’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Opa Sangante’s own goal in the 37th minute proved to be decisive in the game.

The three points saw the Super Eagles qualify for the last 16 as runners-up from Group A.

But Yobo, speaking on AfroSport, said: “It was not a convincing victory even though we got the deserved result we needed. The team still need more cohesion because from the midfield, we are yet to get it right.

“However, we have more attacking players than midfield players. But then, when Iwobi picks, I am sure the team will create more goal scoring chances.

“I think keeping a clean sheet is another positive result from today’s game and it shows the defence is doing something good.”
