SUPER Eagles captain, Mikel Obi has
declared that the team will not flop if
they must qualify for next year’s World
Cup in Russia.
Nigeria are currently 6 points clear in
Group B African qualifying and are on
the verge of reaching their sixth World
Cup after their 1-1 draw with Cameroon
on Monday night in Yaounde.
Mikel said, “I was in the 2014 World
Cup team where I thought we didn’t do
as well as we should. It was not the best.
I hope to go to Russia. We owe Nigerians
a better World Cup than Brazil 2014.
“I came into the team and played
with great players like Jay Jay Okocha,
Nwankwo Kanu and Joseph Yobo who
were on their way out.”
He added, “We have a very good
young team, probably the youngest I’ve
ever played with.”
“If we qualify for Russia 2018, we’ll
aim to do much better.”
The Super Eagles’ first World Cup was
in 1994 where they reached the second
round. Since then they had qualified for
every World Cup except Germany 2006
