Former Nigerian Super Eagles Striker Daniel Omokachi nicked name “The Bull” has given his assertion on the current Super Eagles squad before the 2018 world cup.

The former Everton striker said he want to urge Nigeria to get qualified before playing Argentina in the final group stage match.

Nigeria has been drawn into a group that boost of Iceland, Croatia and Argentina. Nigeria’s opening match will be against Croatia before taking on the Icelanders then play a final group stage match against Argentina.

When asked why he wants Nigeria to qualify before playing Argentina he said;

“Let’s not deceive ourselves, Argentina remains the biggest team in that group and either we like it or not, the team is far above us in terms of quality. Let’s not forget, they are finalist in the last FIFA World Cup and they narrowly lost 1-0 to Germany. They will be coming with a whole lot of trouble and they won’t mind relishing the anger of the 4-2 defeat they suffered in our last international friendly. What am trying to say is I wish we already gained qualification ticket before we meet them. This will put us in a more relaxed mood to play them. I wish we could play them in a relaxed mood to absolve any pressure they want to put on us.”

Omokachi is the first Nigerian to ever play in the European UEFA Champions league and he is the first Nigerian to score a champions league goal, he achieved this while playing for club Brugge.
