Enyeama: Nigeria will reach semi-finals

22 May 2014, 09:41

Abuja - Vincent Enyeama is confident the Super Eagles will go as far as the semi-finals at the FIFA World Cup which will commence in Brazil next month.

The goalkeeper, who was voted as the best African footballer in the French Ligue 1 this past season, stated that Nigeria will make history this time in spite of the fact that the continental champions have failed to progress beyond the first round in their last two outings.

"I think we are going to make big progress," Enyeama told FIFA's official website.

"We are focused on the World Cup, to make Africa the proudest continent. Ghana almost reached the semi-finals four years ago. We are going to achieve a better result and be the first African team to get to the semi-finals of the World Cup."

Nigeria have been paired in Group F alongside Argentina, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Iran, and Enyeama is confident Nigeria will progress from the group.

The 31-year-old, who is making his third appearance at the World Cup, is also coming up against Argentina for the third time. He was on the bench for Nigeria during the 2002 Korea/Japan World Cup, and he manned the posts against the Argentines at South Africa in 2010.

- Kick Off Nigeria
