Nigeria winger Moses Simon promised the fans better performance in the future after the AFCON’s opening game 1-0 win against Egypt on Tuesday night.

The Super Eagles had a good start to their Africa Cup of Nations campaign, having overcome Pharaohs in what looked like a one-sided game.

Eagles had a comfortable game, controlling the rhythm the way they preferred, the score gap could have increased if not for goalkeeper Mohamed El-Shennawy’s courageous display.

Simon tormented the Pharaohs and was involved in Kelechi Iheanacho’s winning strike.

He expressed joy for making the morale boosting victory possible.

“I feel happy and great. All thanks to the team and technical staff for making it possible. The coaches gave us confidence to put up the beautiful display,” Simon told after the Super Eagles trained on Wednesday morning at VSTS-ANNEX, Roumdé Adjia Stadium, Garoua.

“I try to do my best. If a coach tells me to play right or left, it shows he believes in me. I will continue to give my best when called upon.

The Nantes man praised team spirit in the Super Eagles camp at the African showpiece.

“We have a good team spirit, young and talented players. Whoever is on the pitch will always prove himself. We hope to continue to perform and improve.

The game against Sudan is something we need to be careful with. In Africa there is no small team. We need to give 100% and win the next match.
