Calabar - Mr Chris Green, Chairman of the Technical committee of the NFA said on Sunday that Nigeria could top their group in the on-going World Cup qualifying matches.
He told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Calabar that in spite of forcing Kenya to a draw in Calabar in a world cup qualifying match, Nigeria had the potentials to win other matches.
He said nobody should write off Nigeria because the team could still bounce back to reckoning.
On the match against Kenya, Green said as African champions, opposition was bound to be stronger in any match.
He said the Eagles could still win the return match in Nairobi and other matches in their group.
"Well, we actually expect this. This is exactly what football is all about.
"You know, we are champions and everybody that we play henceforth, will begin to do everything humanly possible to win us.
"But again, the championship stuff we've shown here is our resilience, our ability to come back and equalising at the end of the day.
"So, it’s not over for us. We are still in the race. We can also turn the tables in Kenya. We can go ahead and beat other teams away and win the group.
"It's not over, but I think we will need a lot of work."
Green said allegations by Kenyan officials about biased officiating against them were false and urged Nigerians not to lose hope on the Eagles as the team had the potential to qualify for the next round of the World Cup qualifying matches.
