Liberian President, George Weah, has declared that the Super Eagles of Nigeria have the potential to win the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Recall that Weah is the only African player to have won the coveted World Footballer of the Year Award during his playing days.
Responding to a questions from the Nigerian media on Monday after he held a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa Abuja, Weah said, “everything that the players need must be put in place as they prepare for the World Cup.”
He further advised Nigeria to ensure early preparation, adding that a situation where the players lose concentration because, “one Minister took money away” should not be allowed to happen.
Weah said while he was in Europe, “We just go into camp and everything is provided, we don’t do anything other than to relax and play the game, we are not allowed to worry over other things.”
