Chief Coach of the Super Eagles, Emmanuel Amuneke, has said that the Super Eagles can qualify for the World Cup but noted that the team must do all that’s needed to be done.
Amuneke, who as announced as the Eagles’ Chief Coach last week will be on the bench alongside Augustine Eguavoen when the Eagles take on the Black Stars of Ghana in next month’s FIFA World Cup playoffs.
The four time African champions, Ghana, will welcome the Super Eagles in Cape Coast as they look to bounce back from the AFCON 2021 disappointment, while the second leg will be played at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja.
Speaking on the game, Amuneke revealed, the technical crew are already thinking about the game and insisted they are good enough for the tickets.
“Our mind now is on the game against Ghana, the AFCON is gone and even the least person on the street wants the Super Eagles to be in Qatar, I think that spirit and motivation, the positive vibes from everyone in the country will go a long way to help us.”
“We can qualify surely, but we will need to do all the things needful. In football, there are so many things and those at times determine the success of a team. ”
“Hopefully, when the time comes, Nigeria will be in a good position to compete with Ghana. It’s a known fact about the rivalry between Nigeria and Ghana and whether we like it or not, we are brothers. ” He stated.
