World Cup: NFF not scared of Super Eagles’ opposition in Russia — Akinwunmi

Unread postby Wsj » Wed May 16, 2018 3:07 pm

The Super Eagles are not afraid of any opposition in Russia at the World Cup because they are well motivated; the Nigeria Football Federation’s (NFF) 1st Vice-President, Seyi Akinwunmi, has said.

Seyi Akinwunmi told the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Lagos that the NFF had confidence in the team.

“Nigeria is blessed with young talented footballers who are capable of bringing good results.



“We are not scared of the teams in our group, we are happy with the team, we have a blend of experienced and young and fit players; a good squad with a good coach.

“The friendly matches are good testimonies of the Eagles preparation for the World Cup. We have played Argentina and Poland and we defeated both teams; both games are good enough to test the waters.

“Before those games, nobody gave us a chance, but football is football, as long as players give their all, the result will be positive.

“Our youth development system is working because we said few years ago that we want to lower the average age of our senior team which we have achieved,’’ he said.

Akinwumi said though Nigeria had yet to reach the height expected, the football house would stop at nothing to improve the lots of the national team.

“Although it is not yet uhuru for us, we are still working on something that is enduring for the team, so we are hopeful.

“We have a team well motivated enough to face any opposition at the World Cup; individually we are not scared of any team. The team’s responsibility is just to play football.

“What we have done is to prepare better for the World Cup than what we have done in the past. We have everything prepared in terms of logistics, training, accommodation and welfare.



“We are happy with what we have on ground and there is no worry in the camp at all, anything that may come up will be just a minor issue,’’ he said.

NAN reports that Nigeria is in Group D alongside Croatia, Iceland and Argentina for the Mundial.
