Super Eagles now focused on 2026 World Cup Qualifiers – Kenneth Omeruo

Nigerian footballer, Kenneth Omeruo says the Super Eagles will now focus on the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers following their friendly tour in Morocco.

The Super Eagles played two friendlies against Ghana and Mali as part of their preparations for the World Cup qualifiers.

Nigeria defeated Ghana 2-1 and lost 2-0 to Mali in the two friendlies.

Omeruo now says that the players are determined to give their all for maximum points when the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers resume in June.

“We went into the match against Mali determined to win, just as we did against Ghana. In the end, they took their chances and we failed to take ours. That’s football. You just have to take the chances that come your way,” he was quoted by thenff.com.

“Many players in the group have not played at the World Cup before and they see this as the big opportunity to be there. We cannot afford to let ourselves and the nation down.”

The Super Eagles will face South Africa and Benin Republic in their next two games in the World Cup qualifiers.

The super eagles are yet to record a win in the qualifiers having drawn their opening two games against Lesotho and Zimbabwe.
