With less than 200 days to the start of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the Super Eagles and KAA Gent of Belgium star, Moses Simon, believes adequate preparation and hard work will help Nigeria to a great outing in Russia. Simon, told AOIFootball.com that Nigeria had all it takes to succeed if the right things were put in place, he also praised the Nigeria Football Federation for arranging quality friendly matches for the team. “I believe we have a good chance of doing well at the World Cup if we work hard and stay dedicated; we have to be united and committed to ensure we succeed in Russia
“Our first game will be very key and I am sure the team will be ready to take on Croatia. Although it will be a very difficult game, I think we have the players to match them man-to-man.
“The friendly games will be a good preparation for us, particularly the England tie, because it will give us insight into what to expect against Croatia and Iceland. It will also give the coaches an opportunity to select the players who will be capable of representing the country in Russia,” Simon said.
The former AS Trencin star also said it had been a good season so far for him, and hopes to do better in 2018 while also praising Gernot Rohr for impacting positively on his career over the past 12 months.
“It’s been a fantastic season so far. I am enjoying my new role and I love playing there, whether it’s for my club or for the national team. I just want to work harder this year and hopefully, play well at the World Cup if I am selected. “I want to thank Rohr because he has really helped to improve the tactical aspect of my game and I am confident he will lead Nigeria to great things at the World Cup,” Simon added.
