Nigeria defender Chidozie Awaziem is confident his French club Nantes will claim the UEFA Europa League spot at the end of the Ligue 1 season, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Nantes are currently sixth in the French Ligue 1 with 44 points from 30 games, one point adrift fifth-placed Stade Rennes.
They are also 12 points off fourth-placed Olympique Lyon.
“We have eight games left to play and there is a possibility that a lot can happen before the end of the season,” Awaziem told CSN.
“I believe we can still get the UEFA Europa League qualification spot.”
Nantes will face Saint Etienne later on Sunday.
Awaziem also weighed in on the performance of the Super Eagles against Poland and Serbia.
“They were tough games, especially the game against Serbia,” he added.
“But I’m sure the games will make us better.”
