Many reactions have been trailing the African qualifying draw for the 2018 World Cup that has Nigeria pitted in what has been tagged the ‘death group’, and Completesportsnigeria.com reports that Samson Siasia and Emmanuel Amuneke have both expressed their belief in the ability of the Super Eagles to qualify for the tournament.
According to the report, Siasia said: “Most people have written off Nigeria, but the truth is that you get the best of the Super Eagles when you don’t give them a chance. I think the Eagles going into the qualifiers as underdogs is good, as it will bring out the best from everybody
“The key to qualification depends on how well the team prepares and how the NFF motivate the team to face their opponents. If the NFF put all the necessary things in place, I am sure the Eagles will qualify for Russia 2018.”
On his part, Amuneke said: “Group of death or not, the Super Eagles have what it takes to qualify if NFF do the right things and on time.
”Our group opponents are free to write us off at their peril because I am sure the Eagles will always rise to the occasion when the need arises and qualify.”
