Amaju Pinnick, president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), says the Super Eagles are capable of excelling at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

In an interview with CNN, Pinnick said all the teams in Eagles’ group cannot be underrated.

Pinnick said Nigeria is blessed with youth who can still play for the Super Eagles in the 2022 World Cup.

“We are taking it a step at a time. We are not going to start saying we are going to beat everyone,” Pinnick told CNN.

“If you look at our group, it’s a very decent group. It’s 50-50 for each of the team.

“You don’t underestimate any team because if you look at every team, they all have their rich pedigree in world football.

“Argentina, of course, have one of the best players in the world, Croatia have some of the best quality players though they struggled to qualify.

“When we were going to play against Argentina a couple of weeks ago, it was 6 to 1. But you see the truth is that in Nigeria we always believe and once we believe, we conquer.

The NFF president said the patriotism of the Super Eagles will motivate them to rise to the occasion.

“Our players are quite patriotic, they love the green white green and want to make the country very proud,” he said.

“And the beauty about Nigeria is that we just don’t have a team for today. We have a team for tomorrow. We have a team for the next Nations Cup. A team for the next World Cup. Our team is peopled by youthfulness. They have that energy they want to burn out,” he said.
