2026 WCQ: Super Eagles Not Out Yet — Sports Minister

Nigeria’s sports minister John Enoh is optimistic the Super Eagles can still secure a place at the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

The Super Eagles have endured a poor start to their qualifying campaign failing to record a win in four games.

The former African champions currently occupy fifth position on the Group C standings.

Despite the team’s precarious position on the table , Enoh is still rooting for the Super Eagles to qualify for the global soccer fiesta.

“The majority opinion is that it’s not impossible yet (to qualify for the World Cup),” the sports Minister said in an interview on Eagle7 FM on Saturday.

“In sports, noting is impossible.

“We have only played four out of 10 qualifying matches, we still have six matches remaining.“I believe that with the right mix of a coach, who is convinced it is possible, the right mentality of the players, they have to have the fire and the hunger, it is still possible.

“The next round of qualifiers will be in March next year, so we have got some time.

“To get it right, we have to do things in the buildup (to the next round of qualifiers) to send fears to our opponents.”

    IT IS A BIG SHAME THAT SUPER EAGLE HAVE NOT GET A FULL TIME SUBSTANTIVE COACH TILL NOW. WE ALWAYS LIKE TO BE WASTING TIME IN DOING THINGS. WHEN IVORY COAST, GHANA, ALGERIA, EGYPT, CAMEROON SACK THEIR COACHES. FOR HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE THEM TO EMPLOY A NEW COACH.
    BUT IN NIGERIA CLAIMING TO BE GIANT OF AFRICA, WE ALWAYS LIKE TO BE WASTING TIME. GIVING DIFFERENT KIND OF EXCUSES BY SAYING NO MONEY.
    WHAT A SHAME!!!
    ** MINISTER ENOH, SOURCE FOR MONEY AND LET NFF EMPLOY WORLD CLASS COACH THAT KNOWS ABOUT AFRICAN FOOTBALL AND SUPER EAGLE PLAYERS.
    GIVE US HERVE RENARD and SIASIA

    Oga go and do the right thing first of all that NFF electorate statutes needs to be modified and restructured

    Secondly as @pompei said in a different post any elected board member of the NFF SHOULD BE given performance and results based specifications in their area of expertise that way we’ll stop seeing life office holders and start seeing pure football enthusiasts who have the interest of our football in their hearts and souls.

    And not looking for vague solutions that would be like ice cream on top manure.
