The performance of the Super Eagles in friendlies against Argentina and Poland is clear indication the team’s qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup was no fluke, Ex International and team coordinator Patrick Pascal has stated.
Nigeria qualified for a six world cup appearance with a game to spare and without losing a game.
The team tutored by Gernot Rohr, brushed aside African Champions Cameroon, a star studded Algeria and resurgent Zambia sides, but it seemed the Eagles still had more to prove.
Nigeria had failed to qualify for two consecutive African Nations Cup and were riding against the odd in the world cup qualifiers.
Incredibly, Rohr’s rebuilding process of the team took off like a rocket and Pascal insists results against two-time world champions, Argentina and highly rated Poland are evidence the Eagles are coming of age again.
He told Brila.net that the team has done the country proud and believes they have also managed to win back the trust and support of the fans.
