President Muhammadu Buhari has made it clear to the Super Eagles that qualifying from Group D of the 2018 FIFA World Cup is no longer acceptable. He wants the team to aim at winning the World Cup trophy. Special Adviser to the President, Femi Adesina, who made the declaration, also charged other African teams not to have low ambitions. He stated that funding would not be an issue for the Super Eagles team. Nigeria should do well, do very well at the World Cup.
