Super Eagles forward, Ademola Lookman, has said the team is getting better with each game at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Cote d’Ivoire.

Lookman whose brace helped Nigeria win the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon 2-0 in the Round of 16 clash on Saturday in Abidjan stated that the Eagles were poised to soar in the tournament.

The diminutive winger who was named TotalEnergies Man of the Match said after the game that the win was a collective effort.

“Wow, we’re so happy to qualify for the quarter-finals.

“The more we play together, the more fluid we become. I’m standing here now but this award reflects the whole team’s performance,” the Atalanta player said after the win against Cameroon.

Lookman commended the support from the Nigerian fans in the stands for giving the team the push to defeat the Cameroonians.

“I love this atmosphere, it’s incredible. Tonight our fans pushed us to the end because this was Cameroon, and when you wear the Super Eagles shirt, some games resonate more than others,” he said.

The Atalanta player said all attention would now be focused on the Angola game on Friday in Abidjan.

“Angola are a good team. We’ll analyse them and prepare.

“The further you go, the tougher it gets. So, we’ll take it game by game,” he said.
