Super Eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo is confident Nigeria can shock the World by emerging winners of the 2018 FIFA World Cup billed for Russia.
The Chelsea center-back believes that focus and hard work can see the team through to the finals or even go all the way to claim the title at the tourney.
”Yes, we can win the World Cup. I think we have never gone past the round of sixteen, this time we are not going to say let us go to the round of sixteen,” Omeruo told OMASPORTSTV.
”We will be been working hard, taking every game as it comes and hopefully our hard work will see us through to the final or to do something that no African country has done.”
The 24-year-old represented Nigeria at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, playing in all four games and he is among the few set of players in the Eagles squad who will be making their second appearance at the Mundial for Nigeria.
Omeruo has made 47 appearances for Nigeria at all levels.
