Former Super Eagles’ midfielder, Garba Lawal says the team can make it out of Group D in the World Cup with adequate preparation.
Lawal also feels there is no need to try to lure Nigeria’s former number one goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, back to the team.
In an interview with brila.net, Lawal predicted that Nigeria’s performance will be largely determined by players’ mental capability.
“Football is all about playing as a team,” Lawal said. “When it comes to the World Cup, it depends on players’ mental attitude.
“All the top scouts in the world would be present, so if you are called upon by the coach, try to showcase your talent, because you never can say, you could get yourself a better deal. I believe we are going to come out of the group, but it is not going to be an easy one anyway,” Garba said.
The former Levski Sofia of Bulgaria midfielder also advised the Super Eagles’ coaches not to rush Vincent Enyeama back to the team.
“Has Enyeama said he wants to come back? He has not been in action for a long time, this is the World Cup, it’s been long we saw him in the net, it’s going to be difficult for him.
“I believe we should not rush the gentleman. We just have to let it go and work with what we have,” Lawal advised.
