World Cup Draw: Super Eagles Can Shock Big Teams In Russia – Amuneke

World Cup Draw: Super Eagles Can Shock Big Teams In Russia – Amuneke

By Johnny Edward: Nigeria must be ready to face the best teams in the world at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, according to former Super Eagles star Emmanuel Amuneke, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria are in Pot 4 ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup draw billed for Friday, December 1 in Russia and Amuneke believes the team can show their class if they brace themselves for the challenges which come with playing at the biggest stage like the FIFA World Cup.

“The World Cup is the biggest stage for any team or player to show their prowess and the Super Eagles should not be cowed about the prospect of beating the top teams,” Amuneke, who is the new coach of Al Khartoum Watani of Sudan, told Completesportsnigeria.com.

“Obviously, nobody gave the team (Super Eagles) a chance to beat Argentina in Tuesday’s international friendly but we all saw how they rattled Argentina. They must be prepared for tougher and better teams than the Argentines in Russia.

“If our team can be a bit dynamic and less predictable like they were against Argentina then we stand a chance of shocking these so-called big teams.

“The draw is just two weeks away and who says we cannot be lucky as well getting teams that are of equal strength to Nigeria.”

The Super Eagles maybe pooled alongside one of the top ranked teams in the world from Pot 1, Pot 2 and Pot 3 during the draw on December 1.

    I hate when people are getting scared for no reason.

    Brazil, Germany, France etc are populated by humans. Nobody came with football at birth. These are humans and on the field of play it is going to be Eleven against Eleven.

    The lack of planning, nepotism, politics and every bad actions have stalled Nigerian football in the past and it seems to be on the right track now with the appointment of the coach and non-interference from the NFF in his duties.

    Bring whoever on, if we win, we win and if we lose, we lose; I don’t care! The only thing we can do is to give everybody their respect. It may interest you to know that Brazil, Germany, France and co are also afraid of Nigeria; because they do not know what to expect from our players.

    Any player who fears Brazil, Germany, France and co is NOT fit to be a professional player and any supporter who fears these countries too should STOP watching football and go to Wrestling.

    I support Nigeria for life!

    For me any team that qualified for the World Cup is a strong team. What we need is to prepare well,play more grade A friendly matches if possible use the same venue in Russia.no interference from anyone allow the coach to do his job,then Nigerians should be praying for the success of the team in Russia.i believe we can win any team because no team is unbeatable.
