Super Eagles goalkeeper coach, Alloy Agu, says he is hoping the team gets a favourable draw in Friday’s 2018 Fifa World Cup draw.
Agu said after booking a place at the tournament, the three-time African champions are now looking up to God to help them avoid certain countries.
“I want a favourable World Cup Draw on Friday. That’s what we are fervently praying for. We hope and sincerely pray that God will favour us while we move fast on our own part by working very hard towards a successful outing in Russia,” Vanguard reports him to have said.a
“We just hope that God will perfectly design it for us, whatever God proffered for us must be the best and we must face it squarely.
“However, it makes no sense to opt or offer to avoid certain countries once you want to be the best. “It’s common sense that those countries you wish to avoid at the preliminary round you are sure to meet in the next round or knockout stage.”
He, however, said they were ready to face any team at the competition.
Agu said: “We are not afraid of any country, we have what it takes to confront any opposition at the World Cup. We just hope that God will have a hand in who become our opponents while we do the needful by preparing adequately for the task ahead.”
