Former International, Etim Esin has advised the Super Eagles against underrating countries in their group, as it gets ready to take part in the Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON holding between June 21 and July 19.

Nigeria will play her first match of the AFCON in Group-B against Burundi on June 22. Afterwards, the team will clash with Guinea and Madagascar in the other fixtures of the group.

Etim, who said there are no more minnows in African football, said it would be wrong for the players to take the matches in the group casually, as the Eagles no longer have names that could put fears in their opponents unlike in the past.

The former midfield maestro, who is currently a scout for foreign clubs, said the inclusion of Mikel Obi into the team would boost the morale of the young players, who needed leadership.
