The former Nasarawa United shot stopper admitted that the Eagles had to dig deep to break the resolve of their opponents.

“They were a tough nut to crack despite coming to the Nations Cup for the first time; they showed good strength and they also have good players. Overall, they did very well but we were lucky to get all three points,” Akpeyi stated.

On his performance, the former Dream Team goalkeeper added that the most important thing for him at the moment was the three points secured.
