Super Eagles winger Ezekiel Bassey is confident the side can win the African Nations Championship title next year in Rwanda, Completesportsnigeria.com can report.
Nigeria came third at the last edition of the competition in South Africa after failing to qualify for the first two editions.
The side will converge in Abuja next week Monday for a pre-tournament camping exercise.
Bassey told Completesportsnigeria.com that there is enough quality in the side to claim the trophy.
"We have a strong squad that can beat any side in the continent," Bassey told Completesportsnigeria.com.
"Our target is to win the competition and I believe we are strong enough to do that.
"The teams in our group are good too, but I believe we will make it beyond the group stage and go far in the competition."
The Eagles will compete in Group C alongside Tunisia, Guinea and Niger.
