Former Super Eagles forward, Daniel Amokachi has predicted that Nigeria will win the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Speaking at the partnership signing ceremony between Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, and the Nigerian Breweries, the Benue-born former Everton star said Super Eagles have a very bright chance of lifting the trophy.
Amokachi noted that the level of commitment from the current Super Eagles players was top notch “because they are well bred professional.”
He said, “I am their number one fan. We have a bunch of new generation players who are from the diaspora, who started from academies at early age and played through the ranks to the national team. They understood the game at an early age and that impacted on the team’s performance throughout the qualifiers.
“It is going to be one game at a time. I am happy the focus is not only on the Argentina match as we also have Croatia and Iceland. Croatia are a technical side and Iceland have a disciplined side that hits you after which they will park a bus.
“I was asked in the studio, where I work about the chances of African representatives at the World Cup this year, I was emphatic. I said four teams from Africa would be in the second round, three teams from Africa would be in the quarter final, two in the semi final and one will be in the final. And Nigeria will win the World Cup. That is what I said, that is what I believe. You may have your own belief.”
