Nigeria will qualify and win AFCON 2015- NFF

Published by Daily Trust on Tue, 29 Apr 2014

Nigeria's national male football team, the Super Eagles, will qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, President of Nigeria Football Federation(NFF), Alhaji Aminu Maigari has assured.Maigari, who was at the Draw Ceremony for the qualifying series held in Cairo, Egypt on Sunday, insisted that the defending champions have all ittakes to not only qualify for the finals in Morocco, but to successfully defend the trophy won in South Africa early last year."We are in Group A and we will come out with an 'A' grade," Maigari stated, following the draw that housed Nigeria in the same pool withSouth Africa, Sudan and the winner of the two preliminary rounds among Namibia/Congo Brazzaville and Libya/Rwanda.The qualifying phase starts in the first week of September and, unusually for qualifying campaigns for major competitions, all six matches will beplayed over two-and-half months between September and November.This is as a result of the decision by the Confederation of African Football to move the tournament to odd years, and the African NationsChampionship to even years, with the immediate CHAN coming only a year after the first odd-year AFCON (South Africa 2013) and headlong into theFIFA World Cup finals."We are presently focused on making a major impact at the FIFA World Cup finals in Brazil in the summer," Maigari, also a member of CAF'sOrganising Committee for the Africa Cup of Nations, said."But I tell you, by the time the qualifying series for Morocco 2015 starts, the Super Eagles will be super ready," he added.
