Ideye: Super Eagles Can Win 2018 World Cup!

Ideye: Super Eagles Can Win 2018 World Cup!

By James Agberebi: Nigeria striker Brown Ideye has stated that the Super Eagles are talented enough to win the FIFA 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The Eagles became the first African team to qualify for next year’s World Cup in Russia following their 1-0 win against Chipolopolo of Zambia in Group B on Saturday in Uyo.

Arsenal’s forward Alex Iwobi was the hero as his 73rd minute strike sealed Nigeria’s sixth World Cup appearance.

The win took the Eagles to an unassailable 13 points while Zambia remain second on seven points.

Nigeria’s next game is an inconsequential away game against already eliminated Algeria.

Reacting to the qualification, Ideye whose only appearance for the Eagles in the qualifiers was in the 2-1 away win against Zambia in Ndola in October 2016, said it is time Nigeria started thinking of surpassing previous feats at the World Cup.

“Let us all think and dream of winning the World Cup in Russia 2018. We have all it takes! Let’s start dreaming bigger,” Ideye wrote on Twitter on Monday.

  • OK we don hear

  • Overstatement

  • Abeg talk another tin jor,kole work rara

  • I strongly agree that we can have an impressive showing at the mundial, but first the coach, NFF, sponsors and super eagles represented by the captain should sit down and plan properly and a camp site at RUSSIA should be setup

  • Wetn him DTS ideye dabi make just ordinary dybala dey Zambia match naija would have chop more Dan 4

  • Not yet mr but we can pull off surprise either by playing woefully then present or by going past our highest W/C level.

  • Nigeria qualified for Russia 2018 yesterday, but did we observe what happened on the pitch? Who scored the goal, Iwobi an Igbo guy from the East, who gave the assist, Abdullahi a Hausa guy from the North, there was a defender who I saw did all his best at the back and was crying after the match, Balogun a Yoruba guy from the West. All these guys are from different part of Nigeria and all played a vital role in our victory, but who qualified, is it the East, North, West or South? It was Nigeria. We are one Nigeria and nothing can break us. Peace begins with a smile… think about that. Happy sunday # saynotohatespee ch

  • That means German team didn’t qualified for that world cup be that.

  • It can only happen by God grace, not a word of mouth.

  • Stop the bragado! Prepare well and leave the rest to God….. champion don’t talk, let 90mins be the judge.

  • Brown is day dreaming

  • I will not be surprise if dey fail to pass group stage

  • Please Ideye don’t be a hypocrite. Let’s get a good preparation first before we can start talking about even getting to the round of 16 and beyond.

  • Where Brown Ideye dey sef. He don try I hear about the man. The last place I know say he dey play na Greece. Abi he still dey there? I no just dey follow him atall. Brown if dream dey work, we for don carry many world cup. Na only Nigerians dey believe say any natch or competition we go, we must carry the cup come home. Brazil, Germany, Italy, Spain, Belgium, France, no dey talk as we dey talk. Leicester carry EPL cup no mean say anything fit happen for World Cup football. We go try but to carry World Cup with this team na another thing. If it happen, we no go give out the cup until dem carry war come meet. We sieze the cup. We no go dey play World Cup again so that the record go stand say nobody win us again after we win the World Cup. @shilaka I believe say Cameroon no fit withstand the Zambia team wey play us in Uyo. But if Zambia go use different boy and Cameroon play as dem play us for Cameroon, things fit change. So wetin you ask fit happen wellemly.

  • hahaha,is possible na football

  • We will win it no story its time to set a big history for African
