“I see this set of Super Eagles maturing into a very good side that will dominate the game, the continent and culminating into a solid outing at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar,” the former Ajax Amsterdam star told Complete Sports.

“I see this Eagles developing into a feared side in little time from now. If the team remains together with a long-term coaching crew, I see no reason why the Eagles will not cause some stirs at the World Cup in Qatar.

“The team is still work in progress and the NFF must plan well to ensure they reach their fullpotential.

“To reach their full potential, the Super Eagles must also ensure qualification for the 2019 AFCON in order to continue their development.

“The NFF must also get the team to play grade A friendly games, to give the young squad the needed exposure.”
