Super Eagles Must Beat South Africa To Qualify For World Cup— Finidi


Super Eagles Must Beat South Africa To Qualify For World Cup— Finidi

The Super Eagles head coach, Finidi George, has stated that winning the team’s next two games in the FIFA World Cup qualifying series for 2026 is crucial.

After drawing their first two matches against Lesotho and Zimbabwe in the qualifiers, the three-time African champions have failed to secure a victory.

On Friday, June 7, Finidi will manage the Super Eagles for the first time in an official matchup with the South African Bafana Bafana.

A few days later, Nigeria will play the Benin Squirrels, who are led by former Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr.

“The World Cup qualification matches against South Africa and the Benin Republic is a collective responsibility for all Nigerians. I know I am in charge now and the heavy responsibility is on me to win the two World Cup matches,” Finidi told reporters during his visit to the Nigeria Football Federation’s office in Abuja.

“I will do my best to ensure success and qualify for the World Cup. I am also in touch with the players and they are ready and willing to give their all having missed out on the last edition held in Qatar. In terms of knowing our opponents, I have been following them.

“The world today is a global village, one can monitor anything in the comfort of his/ her sitting room.

“We need prayers and support from everybody, this is our own we can do it and do it well. I watch our players weekly as they play in their various clubs. Honestly, my target is to win the two matches and not to be judged with the two international friendly games played.”

A Gentle Reminder: Every obstacle is a stepping stone, every morning; a chance to go again, and those little steps take you closer to your dream.
