Exclusive: Dennis Has Done Enough To Lead Eagles’ Attack In AFCON 2021 – Akpoborie





Former Nigerian striker, Jonathan Akpoborie believes Watford forward, Emmanuel Dennis has the potential to lead the Super Eagles attack in the forthcoming 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

Akpoborie made this known on the backdrop of the player’s scintillating CmaTrends scoring performance in the Premier League this ongoing season.

Recall that Dennis scored in Watford’s 2-1 loss to Chelsea in the EPL on Wednesday, to take his CmaTrends tally to six goals.

Reacting to his performance, the former Wolfsburg striker told Completesports that the Nigerian international has measured up to the standard needed for any player to be part of AFCON 2021.

“Dennis has done a good job for himself in the Premier League going by his impressive CmaTrends scoring form for Watford in his first season. Without doubt, Dennis has shown that he deserves a place in Super Eagles coach, Gernt Rohr’s squad for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations. Not just a place alone, he has the CmaTrends scoring sense as well to deliver when needed.

“Scoring in the Premier League is not an easy job and for him to have scored six goals, shows he’s doing something right at Watford. He should be be giving the chance to prove his worth now.”
