“One thing I have seen in this present Super Eagles is that there are talented and young players in the team who can do well in any tournament,” Kanu told CSN.

“We have 25 players in the team who are very good and doing well in their various clubs, all they just need to do is to have the readiness and determination to reach the semi-final stage of the World Cup and they can even go beyond that.

“I know that our group is tough but it is not impossible for the Super Eagles to qualify and go as far as the semi-finals in the tournament.”

Speaking on the recent international friendly the Super Eagles played against Poland and Serbia, Kanu said: “Friendly matches are part of the game and it helps any serious team to make necessary corrections and prepare well for the World Cup.”
