The Super Eagles’ Wilfred Ndidi has promised that they will do everything in their power to qualify for the 2026 FIFA World Cup.
The West African team did not make it to the previous World Cup, which was held in Qatar.
In the semifinals, the Super Eagles were eliminated by their long-time rivals, Ghana’s Black Stars, on aggregate.
South Africa, the Benin Republic, Rwanda, Lesotho, and Zimbabwe will all be competing against Jose Peseiro’s squad for a spot in the 2026 World Cup.
We’re happy with the result (against Sao Tome and Principe). Ndidi told reporters that it will enhance morale in the lead-up to the World Cup qualifiers.
It hurt like hell to be left out of the World Cup in Qatar. Our devoted following was deeply let down, and we can’t afford to let them down again.
We need to keep pushing forward as a unit, and eventually the odds should turn in our favor.
On November 13, Nigeria will play host to Lesotho’s Crocodiles in their first qualifying match.
