World Cup Winner Karembeu Tips “Exciting” Super Eagles To Succeed In Russia

Former France and Real Madrid star Christian Karembeu is confident that the Super Eagles team is capable of doing great things at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Karembeu who accompanied the FIFA World Cup Trophy to Nigeria on a four-day tour predicted the three-time African champions will be one of the standout teams at the 2018 World Cup.

Nigeria have been drawn alongside Croatia, Iceland and Argentina in Group D.

“Yes, we know there are a number of strong African countries in the game but Nigeria has always been a great footballing nation, and they have an exciting team heading to the FIFA World Cup in Russia,” Karembeu, a member of France’s 1998 World Cup-winning squad, said during a world press conference held in Abuja on Wednesday

“I have played alongside and against so many Nigerian players and I can attest to their strength and ambition.

“I believe the present Super Eagles squad is capable of great things.”

    The referees are the main reasons why Black African Nations don’t go far in the World cup. Onazi was taken out in that Brazil quarter final match against France in the most brutal fashion. Yet, the guy didn’t get even yellow for it. The higher we go, the more the referees conspires against us. What a shame !!!

    African countries generally do not have good leaders and when people know that no one is going to speak up for you, they treat you like a doormat. I believe that is largely responsible for our pains with respect to officiation in football.
