The Chairman of FCT Football Association (FA), Musa Talle, on Wednesday, said he was confident that Nigeria would be the first African country to win the FIFA World Cup.
Speaking in Abuja, Talle told Newsmen that the country was destined for FIFA World Cup glory by the recent performances of the Super Eagles.
He expressed confidence in the fitness and form of the Super Eagles, and belief that the current form makes it possible for them to bring the World Cup home.
Talle said, “Our Players have upgraded in terms of fitness, form and style of play, and this makes it very possible for them to bring the World Cup home from Russia in 2018.
