Super
Eagles striker, Brown Ideye has told Naijafootball247.com that the World Cup in
Russia in 2018 is a must for the Super Eagles.
Speaking
ahead of Saturday’s AFCON qualifier against Tanzania, Ideye said the players
are looking forward to qualifying for the World Cup having missed out on two
consecutive AFCON tournaments.
“I
really do not understand why people think Nigeria will not qualify for the
World Cup from that group because we have a lot of good and young players in
the team currently.
“I
think we have the upper hand in the group and when you add the new coach that
just came, you will understand why I am optimistic,” Ideye said.
“Right
now the new man in charge is trying to work with all of us and let us know his
style and philosophy and things are looking good.
“We
have no excuse as players. We just have to qualify for the World Cup,” Ideye
said.
Brown
Ideye scored the first goal for the Eagles in the practice game against Akwa
United on Wednesday and is expected to play a part in the encounter against
Tanzania on Saturday.
