Former Nigeria's captain, Nwankwo Kanu has stated that the Super Eagles will only win the 2013 Nations Cup if they have the belief.

Kanu, now a Nigerian football ambassador said he believes Nigeria is going there to win the cup.

"We should all believe in this, the players should believe that we can achieve it but if there thinking is to go there and say well we will be fine if we can reach the semifinal then, they don't believe in theirselves.

"They should see themselves as a winning team and don't put their mind in some players that are not in the team said the two-time African Footballer of the year."

The former Ajax star added that Nigerians should allow Stephen Keshi to concentrate by ending the arguments generated by the list of players invited for the camping.

He declared that the former Togo and Mali coach is experienced enough and can't choose a path to failure.
