Nigeria can win World Cup, insists former coach

Nigeria's former Assistant Coach, Joe Erico, believes that his former charges have the necessary tools to go far in this year's World Cup and even win the tournament.

Speaking with football411.com, Erico said that "If it is well planned, we will get the best out of the players and we may win the cup."

The Super Eagles, who won the 2013 African Cup of Nations for the third time, boast some exciting youngsters and performed admirably in last year's Confederations Cup in Brazil, missing out on a Semi-Final place after finding themselves in a group with Spain and Uruguay.

But are Erico's ideals a little far-fetched considering no African team has gone past the Quarter Finals of a World Cup? He certainly doesn't think so: "what our players need are right incentives and recognition then you will see them come up with their best form and performance."

Nigeria will be in Group F of this year's tournament, alongside Argentina, Bosnia-Hercegovina and Iran.
