Super Eagles’ 2026 World Cup Qualification Not Impossible — Adepoju Says | MarvelTvUpdates

Ex-International, Mutiu Adepoju says nothing is impossible, and Nigeria’s Super Eagles can still qualify for the 2026 World Cup with determination, hard work and seriousness.

Mr Adepoju told the News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday that the players needed resilience, as there was no magic but to win all their remaining matches, to be at the world soccer fiesta.

“First, the players need to be calm, settle down in oneness and determine to win all the next matches.

“The team needs to really settle down, have focus and find a way of moving forward to qualify for the next tournament,” he said.

Mr Adepoju also appealed to the team to play in oneness, unity, and be patriotic during their remaining matches.

He advised them to shun the attitude of pull him down, division and enmity in camp.

The former Super Eagles player also urged the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, to urgently make available things that would motivate the players to perform.

“As for NFF, I don’t have much to say, but the federation needs to act fast to unite the players, so as to bring the best out of them for the next world cup,” Mr Adepoju said.

There has been public outcry on the dismal outing of the Super Eagles in the World Cup qualifying series, where Nigeria is precariously placed fifth behind South Africa, Rwanda, Lesotho and Benin Republic in the race for a ticket to the 2026 World Cup.

To address the Eagles’ recent struggles, the NFF has announced that a foreign coach would be hired for the team.

Finidi George, who was appointed as the team’s head handler in April, has resigned in the face of the development.
