Ahead of the 2018 World Cup draw in Moscow on Friday, NFF president Amaju Pinnick has maintained he is open to any group the Super Eagles will be drawn in.
Nigeria will know their World Cup first round opponents on Friday when the draw is conducted in Moscow, Russia.
The Eagles are likely to be drawn in a tough first round group in Russia 2018 after they were seeded in Pot 4 made up of the eight weakest teams in the 32-team championship
Pinnick, who will lead a nine-man delegation from Nigeria to the draw disclosed that “any team that qualifies for the world Cup is potentially capable of winning the World Cup.

“If countries like the United States, Holland, Chile, Italy did not qualify, then we must understand that the dynamics of football has changed.”
