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.
