“I don’t think I’ll sleep for three days, or probably through a month. I won’t pick up my coach’s call at the moment and for the next month, because we’ll still be jubilating.”
To win the World Cup, qualification is the first process, and Nigeria will kick off the process on November 13th, as they welcome Lesotho to the Godswill Akpabio stadium.
