Abdullahi: Super Eagles Focused On Future After World Cup Exit

Abdullahi: Super Eagles Focused On Future After World Cup Exit

By Adeboye Amosu:

Super Eagles defender Shehu Abdullahi says the team have moved on from their disappointing exit from the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

The Super Eagles failed to progress beyond the group stages at the World Cup for the third time after their painful 2-1 defeat to Argentina at the Krestovsky Stadium on Tuesday.

A draw would have seen the West Africans progress to the knockout stages ahead of Argentina following Iceland’s 2-1 loss to Croatia but a late Marcos Rojo’s effort eliminated them from the competition.

The team will now shift attention to qualifying for the next Africa Cup of Nations to be hosted by Cameroon after missing the last two editions of the competition.

And Abdullahi believes the team will emerge stronger from the disappointment.

“Focusing on the future is our next target! Let’s Believe,” Abdullahi tweeted.

    True talk it’s time to start scrapping average players like Agu Ighalo Shehu idowu akpeyi out of super eagles

    • O boy, Idowu is not Average o. He did well. That is why he was used in 3 games. He is the best left back we have now. The guy tried.

  • Why is he not needed, are you the coach? You will be talking as if you can kick a ball. Don’t know why u n d likes always create confusion in the name you re commenting mtchhhhhhew.

  • You watch Argentina match very well and see what Idowu did in that match. infact all of them played well. Very sentimental and inglorious sets of peoples

      And you are such an average thinker. That is why you can compare Babayaro to Idowu whom by your standard is world class

    If Shehu and idowu are world class what then is Davi alves and Marcelo classed? Some people have a way of manipulating self destruction and avoid the truth.

  • were is alves and Marcelo in the world cup
