Modise made the remarks ahead of Nigeria’s final Group D match on Wednesday against Guinea-Bissau.

After two wins over Egypt and Sudan, Nigeria has already qualified for the AFCON round of 16.

“The ones who are currently playing are more promising and dangerous than the ones I faced, so they have a chance to win.”
