Nigeria id now getting used to 3rd or 4th place in every international competition they enter
For me placing third is the best bet for us, to do well at the world cup. Winning afcon would have given us false status. Now the coaching crew and Nff officials are going to dig deeper to chun out a team that can compete at the world cup.
Seeing the boys play ,one can be hopeful that by beefing up the team and more time together, they will do well at the world cup.There are foreign-based players within the age bracket that can be added to this team.Finally, we should be happy they got one of the tickets to the world cup.
