Nigeria captain Joseph Yobo has refused to make any Nations Cup predictions and says their immediate focus is to get out of the tough group they are in.
The Super Eagles are in Group C with Zambia, Ethiopia and Burkina Faso.
Yobo believes that Nigeria can reach the Afcon Final, but adds that it all depends on taking one game at a time.
"Let us not get beyond ourselves, though. The focus for now is one getting past the group stage and only then should we think about the quarter-finals and, hopefully, the semi-finals and Final.
"Winning the trophy is not going to be easy, but I promise we will give it our best shot. I urge Nigerians to keep praying for us and to believe in this team," Yobo said on cafonline.com.
Nigeria face Burkina Faso in their opening game on January 21.
