KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Usually, foremost sports marketing company HotSports switches on the Christmas light every December to celebrate the beginning of the Yuletide, however, this year's event coincides with the World Cup Final Draw which holds in Russian Federation and there couldn't possibly be a better candidate to do the honour than World Cup veteran, Solaja.

Babangida also said the technical adviser of the team, Gernot Rohr is a lucky and ambitious man as can be seen in his outing so far with the Super Eagles.

"There is no superpower in football. I am not scared of any of them", Nwosu, who won the Africa Cup of Nations with the Super Eagles in 1980 as a schoolboy said.

"Between the three of us; Shehu Dikko, Seyi Akinwunmi and myself, we held series of meetings in my house and we looked at the A to Z of everything that could be an impediment to our qualifying for the World Cup". The World Cup is not a tea party and our boys should not have problems playing against anybody. Perhaps one of the reasons aside from their legion of stars is the fact that they are the only winners of the world cup since its inception in 1930.

The other countries are five -time world champions Brazil; four -time champions Germany; 1966 champions England; 2010 champions Spain; Belgium and; Iran.

Nigeria is in Pot 4 with Serbia, Australia, Japan, Morocco, Panama, South Korea and Saudi Arabia.

The Super Eagles have been placed in Pot 4, which contains all the lowest-ranked teams from the October FIFA ranking, while both France and Germany are seeded in Pot 1 alongside the highest-ranked teams.

But Chukwu is unperturbed with the prospect of facing those big guns and has rather challenged the team to put up their best in the tournament. "I am not under any pressure and am projecting a quarter final target for Nigeria, which in honesty, is a realistic benchmark", Nwosu said.
