Former Nigerian international, Alloy Agu has urged Nigerians not to write off the Super Eagles despite their shaky start to their 2026 World Cup qualifiers.

Recall that Nigeria lost 2-1 to Benin after being initially held to a 1-1 draw by South Africa at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo.

The Super Eagles are winless after four games and sit in fifth place in Group C with three points.

 

However, in a chat with  Agu stated that it will be too early to think the Super Eagles can qualify from the group.

He noted that Nigeria will turn the table around and do the impossible in the remaining six games left in the qualifiers.

“Yes, I agree that the last two results against South Africa and Benin were a big blow to Nigeria’s World Cup ambitions. But then, it will be wrong to write off the Super Eagles at this stage.

“I am still optimistic that the team will pick the ticket for the World Cup. It may be a tough challenge, but Nigeria knows how to rise to the occasion when the chips are down.

“It is not over yet because the Nigerian spirit will be invoked and the impossible in the eyes of many will be achieved.”
