Ex international, Patrick Pascal has expressed his confidence in the Super Eagles picking a ticket for the 2020 World Cup in Qatar.
According to the team coordinator of the three-time African champions, the Eagles have the playing personnel to book the world cup ticket ahead of other teams in the group while admitting that the coach, Gernot Rohr may have selection headache due to the arrays of stars in the team.
“We are rich in attack and our players are solid too, so we will do our best to play to our strength. We are blessed with talented players and we keep having them, some of them are playing for top leagues all over the world, so it is going to be very interesting to name first eleven”.
“Super Eagles will not underrate any country but Nigeria still remains the best in the group.”
Nigeria have a seemingly easy draw in the race for qualification for the Mundial as they begin the second round of the qualifiers against Liberia in Lagos on September 3.
Gernot Rohr’s men will then travel to Cape Verde on September 7.
The Super Eagles play a double-header against the Central African Republic (CAR) between October 6 and 12. Nigeria will host the first leg, before travelling for the reverse fixture.
They will then play against Liberia and Cape Verde again the following month. These two matches will be played between November 11 and 16.
Group winners will qualify for the final round of qualifications where the 10 best group teams will be paired in twos and they will play another home and away matches. The winners of this last stage will qualify to fly the continent’s flag in Qatar.
