Ex-super Eagles and Arsenal striker, Kanu Nwakwo has said that he is confident that the Eagles will advance from their group stage at the fast approaching Brazil 2014 World Cup

"Yes, I am confident, we are African champions, this is the right time, we won the African Cup of Nations in 2013 and now it is 2014," he said.

Super Eagles were drawn in Group F alongside with Argentina, Bosnia and Iran.

Kanu who has capped 86 times by Nigeria, is confident that African defending Champions will see off Bosnia and Iran in their first two games and then subsequently head into the final group game against Argentina without any pressure without entering the knock-out stages.

"We did it in 1994, we were African Champions and we passed the group Stage and I believe something is going to happen, if you look at our group it is one of the easiest groups and we are lucky to find ourself there"

"With all due respect to Iran and Bosnia, I  believe we are going to win those games, Argentina is going to be tough one, but if we do win those games ( against Bosnia and Iran) of course we qualify and that is what we need."

"If we qualify for the knock-out stages, the whole country will be behind the team, the confidence will be there and we will grow from game to game and with that, we can go far," he said.
