Nigerian football star, Austine Jay Jay Okocha has advised the Super Eagles to remain focused as the remaining games against Benin and Lesotho in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers won’t be walkovers.


The three-time AFCON champions will face the Squirrels of Benin on March 22 before hosting the Crocodile of Lesotho on March 30.


Nigeria tops Group L with eight points while Benin sits second on seven points and Lesotho has 2 points.


A win for the Super Eagles against Benin will seal qualification to the bi-annual tournament in Cameroon.


However, Okocha has warned the team not to be complacent.


“Well, no game is easy these days, we have beaten them by 4-2 in the past doesn’t mean that it will be easy this time around, we are the only ones that can make it easy for ourselves by being professional and putting in the required concentration.


“We should just stay focused and make sure that we do what we need to do to get the points that are needed.”
