Despite many Nigerians lamenting Super Eagles chances of grabbing Group C ticket for the 2026 World Cup, Alex Iwobi has given assurance that all is not lost as the team will fight to the end to achieve ticket for the mundial which will be hosted ny Canada, USA and Mexico in 2026.
The Eagles had to fight from behind against both lowly-rated Lesotho and Zimbabwe to record 1-1 draws in Group C of the World Cup qualifiers that also has South Africa, Rwchances anda and Benin.
“We are disappointed with the draws considering the quality of the players,” Iwobi said.
“But we will forge ahead and push to the end.”
He gave credit to Zimbabwe for getting a draw with Nigeria.
“Scoring the first goal made it a lot easier for them,” he said.
Bafana Bafana of South Africa will be expected to widen the gap with the other teams in their qualifying pool Tuesday when they visit Rwanda, while Lesotho host Benin in South Africa.
In June 2024, Nigeria will hope to make up for these dropped points when they welcome South Africa to Uyo before a tricky trip to Benin.
