The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) President Alhaji Aminu Maigari has dismissed with a wave of the hand claims that the Super Eagles will face tough opposition from their World Cup group F opponents.
Speaking to reporters at the weekend in Abuja, Maigari, said the national team has put in place all measures to ensure success at the global soccer event so he was not afraid of any country at the mundial.

“We are almost ready (for the World Cup). At our level as a federation, we have put everything in place. Very soon, we will have the three quality friendly matches to polish the boys ahead of the World Cup.

“I have no fear for the World Cup because we are going into a competition; so I see no reason why I should be afraid. I have confidence in the team, country, Nigerians and above all I have confidence in the players because they are committed and we are only looking forward to when we are going to Brazil,” Maigari said.

He also said the federation has no problem with the funds needed to prosecute the World Cup next month.

“We (NFF) are not complaining (about money), and we in the NFF believe in the Federal Government and the NSC. What encourages me the more is the commitment of President Jonathan; so we are comfortable, finances will not be our problem,” he concluded.
