The Media Officer of the Super Eagles, Toyin Ibitoye disclosed this while featuring on the BCOS TV Sports programme, ‘Weekend Sports’ anchored by Tosin Sanya and produced by Adewale Tijani.
Mr ibitoye expressed optimism that the Super Eagles with its array of young and vibrant players would qualify for the two major international completions.
“Super Eagles currently have young and vibrant players who are ready to sacrifice a lot for the national team by giving their best. And they are been handled by a competent technical crew and all I can say is that we will qualify and possibly win the AFCON 2021 tournament by God’s grace and also qualify for the Qatar 2022 FIFA world cup”
He however, noted that the roads to qualifications for those two competitions might not be smooth.
“There are other footballing countries who are healthy competitors to us and are ready to fight out the qualification tickets with Nigeria but with our experience, we will surely overcome them and put smiles on the faces of Nigerians”
The University of Ibadan graduate added that the Super Eagles Coaching Crew are also intent on bringing back the entertaining and delightful play, for which the Nigerian teams were renowned in the eighties and nineties, to the present Super Eagles squad.
The Franco-German Coach of the Super Eagles last month signed another two year deal that will make him tinker the three time African Champions till 2022.
