Spurs' Adebayor says Nigeria are the African team to watch at the World Cup
Tottenham and Togo striker Emmanuel Adebayor believes that Nigeria will end up being the best-performing African team at the upcoming World Cup in Brazil, writing off the chances of the Ivory Coast in the process.
Adebayor, who represented Togo at the tournament in Germany eight years ago, told the Daily Express that: "Out of these teams, it would be Nigeria because of their concentration."
"Because of Stephen Keshi (head coach), he knows alot about football and everything. He has been there before as well as a player."
Denouncing the bid of Ivory Coast, often seen as the strongest African team on paper, Adebayor said: "I never trust them. They are a country that will always let you down. I know all of them from the bench to the manager."
"How come for the last four or five years they have not won the African Cup of Nations? They have got the best striker in Europe in Didier Drogba. They have got the best midfielder today, Yaya Toure. But the thing is, are they going to be collective enough?"
