Former France and Real Madrid star Christian Karembeu is sure the Super eagles are a team to look out for at the Russia 2018 World Cup and is confident they are going to be having a successful campaign.
Karembeu who accompanied the FIFA World Cup Trophy to Nigeria on a four-day tour predicted the three-time African champions will be one of theteams to stand out at the tournament.
Nigeria have been grouped alongside Croatia, Iceland and Argentina in Group D.
“Yes, we know there are a number of strong African countries in the game but Nigeria has always been a great footballing nation, and they have an exciting team heading to the FIFA World Cup in Russia,” Karembeu, a member of France’s 1998 World Cup-winning squad, said during a world press conference held in Abuja on Wednesday
“I have played alongside and against so many Nigerian players and I can attest to their strength and ambition.
“I believe the present Super Eagles squad is capable of great things.”
