Special Adviser to the President, Femi Adesina, who made the declaration, also charged other African teams not to have low ambitions.

“I think we should be more ambitious this time, let’s go as far as we can get and if we can win, why not, but let us not have low ambition.

“Funds should not be a problem as long as everything is put in place timeously. Those who should make the request should make it in good time. If everything is done when it should be done, there should be no problem,” he told sportswriters

Also, Nigeria’s best outing at the World Cup was finishing at the round of 16 three times in five appearances.
