Assistant captain of Nigeria’s Super Eagles, Kenneth Omeruo has disclosed that the players have shift their focus on securing the 2026 FIFA World Cup ticket following their friendlies against Ghana and Mali.
The Super Eagles engaged in two tune up games against Black Stars of Ghana and Eagles of Mali where they won 2-1 against and lost 2-0 to their Malian opponent.
The team that is yet to have a substantive coach following the exit of Jose Peseiro will continue their quest for a place at the World Cup two key fixtures against South Africa and Benin Republic in June.
Omeruo reckoned it is important for the Super Eagles to qualify for the World Cup after missing out the last time in Qatar 2022.
“June is only a few weeks away. We are focused on the matches against South Africa and Benin Republic,” the former Chelsea defender told thenff.com.
“Many players in the group have not played at the World Cup before and they see this as the big opportunity to be there. We cannot afford to let ourselves and the nation down.”
The Super Eagles recorded two points from their opening two qualifying games with two draws against Lesotho and Zimbabwe.
