Fatau Dauda backs Nigeria to qualify for World Cup round of 16 stage

Former AshantiGold goalkeeper, Fatau Dauda has thrown his support behind Nigeria to qualify for the round of 16 of the ongoing FIFA World Cup despite their slow start to the competition.

The Super Eagle kicked off their World Cup campaign with a 2:0 lose to Croatia last weekend.

The three-time Africa champions will be aiming to get their campaign back on track as they play European minnows Iceland on Friday.

According to the Ghanaian shot-stopper, the West Africa giants are still on course to pick the second qualifying ticket to the round of 16 of the competition.

“Starting a tournament on a good note is always an advantage and I strongly believe Nigeria will progress to the round of 16,” the Enyimba FC goalie told Happy FM.

“Today’s match won’t be an easy one because Iceland is having a strong team.”

“The rest of Nigeria matches will not be easy. They should take it match after match and they will go far.”

When asked if he any of the three African countries left in the competition – namely Nigeria, Senegal and Tunisia can make an impact by reaching the quarter-finals stage, he said, “I believe it’s very possible for an African team to reach the quarter-finals of this tournament.”
