Jaja backs Super Eagles World Cup hope

08 May 2014, 19:01

Port Harcourt - Former President of the Nigeria Referees Association (NRA), Sam Jaja says the Super Eagles would do well in the World Cup being held in Brazil next month.

Jaja said,  in Port Harcourt,  that the Eagles build up victory on the continent and preparation were indications that the team would do well.

“The Super Eagles build up from the Nations Cup victory in South Africa to World Cup qualification is an indication that the team will do well.

“Being part of the team to play in Brazil is a great achievement, but that notwithstanding, I believe that we are going to do better than we have ever done before,’’ he said.

Jaja said that one good quality of the present Eagles was the character of the team.
“Coach Stephen Keshi has shown that the Eagles have character and knows what he wants to achieve.

All we have to do now is to support the team and pray for them to do well. “I am optimistic that Keshi has a good team that will do the nation proud at the mundial,’’ he said

According to Jaja, the Eagles have experienced players and have been together since they won the Nations Cup last year in South Africa.
