Former Super Eagles captain Joseph Yobo has tipped Nigeria to make an impact at the Russia 2018 World Cup.
Yobo told the News Agency of Nigeria on Thursday that the team should not be intimidated by Croatia, Argentina and Iceland, who are in their group.
The South Africa 2013 Africa Cup of Nations winner spoke with NAN on the sidelines of a media event by Multichoice Nigeria to unfold its plans for the World Cup.
The former Everton defender commended Nigeria manager Gernot Rohr for the quality players in the team.
Yobo was of the opinion that the challenge in the goalkeeping department in the team would not affect the Eagles in Russia.
He said, “It feels good to see that they (Multichoice Nigeria) want everybody to be a part of the football show by bringing it to their homes.
“The reduced tariffs would afford their customers a chance to enjoy and be a part of history, and I believe the current squad of the Super Eagles would excel in Russia.”
The retired player represented Nigeria at the 2002 Korea/Japan, South Africa 2010 and Brazil 2014 World Cups.
Martins Mabutho, General Manager, Sales and Marketing, Multichoice Nigeria, said football fans would be treated to an overwhelming World Cup Football coverage in June.
As part of the project tagged “Connect with Greatness”, he said the company would reduce the prices of decoders and tariffs to as low as N500 on the Gotv platform.
