Former Super Eagles player, Tijjani Babangida, has expressed doubts over the country’s readiness for the 2018 World Cup at Russia.
The former Ajax Amsterdam player said hopes were dim for the Super Eagles as the country is yet to have a coach while others are preparing for the qualifiers.
He said: “The worse happened already after we were not seeded. And now with Algeria, Cameroon and Zambia in our group, only a miracle could take us out of this group, let’s be realistic even though we also know that anything is possible in football.
“Other nations are already 100 percent ready for the qualifiers, while we are still not certain who our coach will be.”
Babangida who featured at the 1998 World Cup, was recently a special assistant to former Nigeria coach Sunday Oliseh.
