Former Super Eagles of Nigeria striker Julius Aghahowa, has joined millions of Nigerian fans to drum support for the Super Eagles ahead of this summer FIFA World Cup slated for Brazil.
Aghahowa, popularly called ?Aghawonder? during his heydays in the national team, said in a chat with newsmen that he was positive the Super Eagles will break the jinx of reaching the quarterfinal stage of the 2014 FIFA World Cup if the team is well prepared and motivated by both the Nigeria Football Federation and Nigerians at large.
?We have an ambitious coach and a great team that want to make history,? he began.
?I see an ambitious team that will be ready to shed the last drop of their blood to excel if given adequate support by the NFF and the nation at large.
?This team may not have the kind of talents the 1994 team had, but I see them springing some surprises if they maintain team spirit that inspired them to win the Nations Cup in South Africa.?
The former Shaktar Donetsk and Wigan Athletic player said he was happy to hear that NFF had offset coach Stephen Keshi?s salary arrears of four months; pointing out that it will motivate him to work harder towards raising a team that will make Nigeria and Africa proud at the mundial.
?I was happy to hear that Keshi?s outstanding salaries have been paid. It?s a good news and it came at the right time. The presidency and Nigerians are behind him and he has no excuse to give for failure. But we don?t pray for that, we just have to give him and his team our 100 per cent support to do well. I have absolute confidence in Keshi and his team. I have no doubt they will do well in Brazil.?
Aghahowa played for Nigeria at four African Cup of Nations, the 2000 Olympic Games as well as the Korea/Japan 2002 World Cup.
