Nigerian Super Eagles’ skipper Vincent Enyeama is of the believe that he and his teammates can win next year’s World Cup in Brazil.
The Super Eagles made history by becoming the first African side to qualify for the 2014 World Cup. The team qualified on a 4-1 aggregate victory after beating Ethiopia 2-0 on Saturday.
“[Are we going] to make an impression at the World Cup? No, we can actually win it,I wouldn’t be surprised if Nigeria win the World Cup one day – maybe with me. It’s just a matter of time and moment. Everything is possible. Impossible is nothing.” the France-based goalkeeper revealed to BBC Sports.
It is worthy of note that the Nigeria goalie has had seven successive clean sheets with French side Lille this season and continued his fine form on Saturday in Ethiopis
The Super Eagles captain based his belief on his strong Christian conviction, “I believe in God, I believe in the Bible, which says he chooses who he chooses,” the 31-year-old explained. “What if he [God] chooses Nigeria. I don’t believe in statistics and you can never rule us out.”
The Super Eagles will begin preparations for the World Cup when they file out against the Azzuris of Italy in a friendly encounter in London on Monday night (this night).
