The west Africans are apparently in favour of Friday’s draw which was held behind the Giza Pyramids in Cairo
Following the outcome of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, Nigerians are delighted with the opponents the Super Eagles will lock horns against by tipping Group B to be a walk in the park.
Gernot Rohr’s men have been paired against Guinea and two debutants Madagascar and Burundi. They will begin their campaign in Alexandria against the east African nation on June 22 before taking on Paul Put’s side and the Barea on June 26 and 30 respectively.

As easy as this group seems to be for the Super Eagles, I won’t be surprised if we end up needing “our calculators” so as to qualify from the group. #Afcon2019Draw

If Nigeria should get less than 9points in the first round of AFCON…
There’s a good chance they won’t make the semis..
That group is the easiest of all #AFCON2019Draw

Honestly, if the Super Eagles can’t get all 9 points in this group, we’ve got no business winning the 2019 AFCON. #Afcon2019Draw

Nigeria, Madagascar, Guinea and Burundi in Group B.
Not a bad fixture for the Super Eagles in the AFCON draws.

Coach Gernot Rohr on AFCON draw-
“Group B will be tough. Guinea 🇬🇳, Madagascar 🇲🇬 and Burundi 🇧🇮 are decent sides so we have to prepare well. We plan to play build up games vs Ghana(in Nigeria), and maybe Senegal. See whining..
