2018 World Cup: What Super Eagles Should Expect – Super Eagles Head Coach Reveals
One of the football authorities in Nigeria has urged the Super Eagles to brace up for the tough teams against the draw to be conducted tomorrow.
Former Super Eagles head coach, Christian Chukwu has told the team and management to expect anything from the Friday’s draw in Russia.
Chukwu said the players must be ready to face any opposition at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
The draw for the competition comes up on Friday, December 1. Nigeria is already placed in Pot 4, the supposedly weakest of the four pots.
That could pit the West Africans against heavyweights like Germany, Brazil, Argentina, Spain, Belgium, and the likes.
The former Super Eagles defender told Complete Sports, “It’s good to pray for a favourable or easy draw, but it is important to prepare very well and have the belief that you can conquer any opposition.
“Our team is young and we have a lot of quality players that can face any opposition in the world. I believe we will do well in Russia irrespective of the opposition.
“The World Cup is also not meant for boys, it is for real men. If you want to be rated highly or respected, then you must beat the best.
“One thing is to be placed in an easy group and become complacent or grouped with the top teams and prepare for a bigger battle ahead.
“I believe if we get the key things right like adequate preparation, players’ bonus and other ones, we will do well in Russia.”
