“One thing I have seen in this present Super Eagles is that there are talented and young players in the team who can do well in any tournament.
“We have 25 players in the team who are very good and doing well in their various clubs, all they just need to do is to have the readiness and determination to reach the semi-final stage of the World Cup and they can even go beyond that.
“I know that our group is tough but it is not impossible for the Super Eagles to qualify and
