Winners of the AFCON 2013 but unable to qualify for the AFCON 2015 in Equatorial Guinea, the Super Eagles are determined to participate in the celebration of global football in June 2018 in Russia.
Who would have thought that the winner of the 2013 AFCON Can not take part in the 2017 edition, after being eliminated by Egypt. A critical situation for a country that has players playing in the top leagues in the world, but are unable to create a good team. They will have to stick together this time, otherwise, another disappointment looms.
With five appearances in the World Cup and three 1/8th finals in 1994, 1998 and 2014, Nigeria which is the African country with the most consistent performance in the World Cup remains a juggernaut in terms of experience and relying on the generation of world U17 champions two years ago, will be a difficult customer to maneuver in this group where nothing is preordained. And if the time of nostalgia for information that Cameroon has often taken precedence over the Green Eagles, it is now far from the days of Milla, Omam, Abega (1984 and 1988) or that of Eto’o, Geremi, Song, Alioum Boukar (2000) with memorable and historic victories. Ball in the center; it’s going to play!
