However, braving the "group of death" (which includes big names in African football like Cameroon, Algeria, and Zambia) to become the first African country to qualify for the World Cup might just be a sign that Nigeria means business as far as Russian Federation is concerned.

"Consistency will matter, if the team is kept together and actively involved in programs and activities to allow bonding among the players then we stand a chance".

However, nothing has yet been said officially of this following Eagles' victory over the Chipolopolo of Zambia at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo last Saturday.

Following Nigeria's qualification for the 2018 World Cup, Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, will continue in his office beyond 2018 as he has earned a contract extension. It is a fulfilment of all I have been looking forward to for some time now.

"I am very excited to be working with this team: a blend of the experienced and the young and ambitious ones".

"Right now we are back on track, but the hard work all starts for the Super Eagles from here", Fashanu told Completesportsnigeria.

The Super Eagles were the first African national team and the 12th in the world to qualify for the global football event tagged "Russia 2018".
