Former Super Eagles forward, Julius Aghahowa has expressed his optimism that the current Super Eagles will do well in the next summer’s FIFA World Cup holding in Russia.
In a brief chat with brila.net, the former Wigan Athletic striker stated that he shares the same belief like every other Nigerians.
“Everyone is optimistic, Everyone is believing in this team,”
He added that with the experience of Coach Gernot Rohr, the coach can handle any kind of pressure from Nigerians ahead of the national team’s World Cup participation
Aghahowa who featured for Nigeria at the 2002 Korea/Japan world cup said the preparation lined up for the Super Eagles are good enough to prepare the team and get them ready for what to expect at the world cup.
Meanwhile, Coach Gernot Rohr said it was practically impossible to consider Vincent Enyeama for the World Cup because the former national keeper is struggling with his form.
Enyeama called time on his international career in October 2015 following a row with former Nigeria coach Sunday Oliseh, but there were rumours that he may go back on his decision to quit the national team.
Enyeama’s inactivity for Ligue 1 strugglers Lille has counted against him and Rohr has kept faith with the goalkeepers he utilized during the World Cup qualifiers and November’s friendly vs Argentina in his latest roster.
