Former Eaglet sure of Super Eagles success in Brazil

03 December 2013, 18:37

Lagos - A member of the Golden Eaglets squad of 1993 Karibe Ojigwe has said the Super Eagles would excel at the 2014 World Cup.

Ojigwe told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the Eagles would give a good account of themselves, no matter the quality of opponents in their group.

NAN reports that the draws for the 2014 FIFA World Cup would hold on Friday, Dec. 6 in Salvador, Brazil.

“That is what the World Cup is all about. We are playing against the best in the world”.

“I think the crop of players that we have now are regular players in their various clubs”.

“These are the same clubs where these top stars play. So, we have a good team right now because we’ve employed a home-based coach”.

“He knows these players one by one. It doesn’t matter who comes against us. All we need is to do our best and then see what comes out at the end of the day”.

Ojigwe, who played for FC Kaiserslautern and FC Koln of Germany, also appealed to Nigerians to allow Stephen Keshi remain focus on his job and not distract him.

He said there was no time for anyone to start suggesting players to the coach, especially as he had demonstrated his competence by his accomplishments with the team.
