Togo striker, Emmanuel Adebayor, believes Nigeria is the only African country that will perform creditably well at the summer World Cup in Brazil.

Apart from Nigeria, there are four other African countries that will take part at the World Cup from next month, and they are Algeria, Cameroon, Ghana and Cote d’ Ivoire.

But the Tottenham Hotspur forward has picked the African champions to shine at the World Cup ahead of the other African representatives saying the team “has all the ingredients to be good in the World Cup.”

He explained that Super Eagles because of its coach, Stephen Keshi, who managed Togo between 2004 and 2006 and qualified the team for the 2006 World Cup, will perform creditably well.

The former Arsenal and Manchester City man also talked on the influence the trio of John Obi Mikel, Victor Moses and Vincent Enyeama will have in the  team during the World Cup.

“Out of these teams, it [my choice for which of the African teams will go the furthest] would be Nigeria because of its concentration. Because of Stephen Keshi [the coach] – he knows a lot about football and everything. He has been there as well as a player for Nigeria.

“And the team has got Victor Moses, who is a great friend of mine, and I like the way he plays. Jon Obi Mikel played a lot for Chelsea this year and showed how good he is. Their goalkeeper (Enyeama) is very good. Nigeria has all the ingredients to be good in the World Cup,” Adebayor said.
