The former FC Barcelona winger however admits that it won't be a very easy task.

"That being said we do not envisage it will be anyway easy because the other teams have also got to be thinking of winning (the World Cup).

"We don't want to get too confident and carried away because we are yet to get to our destination and the road to success is always looking under construction, like I always say," he noted.

The Golden Eaglets, as the Nigerian U17 boys are otherwise called, begin their campaign on the 17th against the United States of America. And then they also play hosts Chile, and Croatia.
