President of Confederation of African Football (CAF) says Nigeria remains the best in the continent despite Tunisia’s position as number one in FIFA’s latest ranking.
Ahmad who claimed the Super Eagles are the strongest team represent the African continent in the Russia 2018 World Cup said, “No doubt, Nigeria is the strongest African team going to Russia and we expect so much from the Super Eagles,”
He made the claim after speaking with football stakeholders in Lagos and went further to make comments about the President of Nigerian Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick.
“Amaju (Pinnick) has been spot-on in at least two major decisions this year: to support the change at CAF and to get the Nigerian fraternity to work assiduously towards Nigeria’s qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.”
In Africa, Nigeria sits four places behind Tunisia in this month’s FIFA ranking and had also gone up three places to maintain their fifth spot in Africa since September.
