Share This

As the Super Eagles prepare to face Argentina in the last group match of the Brazil 2014 World cup, former Super Eagles Gaffer, Adeboye Onigbinde has stated that the current crop of players in the team could go as far as winning the World Cup if their handlers could shun personal sentiments in player’s selection before any match.

Stephen Keshi-led technical has faced criticism in his selection before the team’s previous games.

For Coach Onigbinde who took charge of the team during 2002 World Cup finals in Korea, the present Eagles squad have put up a good show so far in Brazil but need to remain focused and determined to fight on.

Speaking to newsmen, the erstwhile Shooting Stars tactician hinted “I don’t believe in mathematics in football.  The Eagles team are on the right path. All they need to do is to keep the fate.

“Their performance against Bosnia was better than what we saw against Iran. Let’s hope the keep it up. They just need to play their next game and pick a draw to qualify for second round.

“Anything is possible in football. When I say this People think otherwise but the fact remains that Nigeria is capable of winning the cup depending on how the team is handled.
