‘We Will Ensure Nigeria Qualify For 2026 World Cup’ —Etebo

Super Eagles midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo says he and his teammates will do everything possible to make sure Nigeria qualify for the 2026 World Cup.

The Eagles missed this year’s World Cup in Qatar after losing on away goals to the Black Stars of Ghana in the play-offs in March.

Etebo was in action for the Eagles as a 1-1 draw in Abuja was enough to qualify Ghana after the first leg ended goalless.

And speaking about missing out on this year’s edition in Qatar, Etebo said he had high hopes of playing in his second World Cup.

“I have had good memories, was at the last edition in Russia and I had hopes of playing in Qatar, but it was not meant to be,” he was quoted on brila.net.

“It hurts not playing in Qatar but as a team, we will ensure we qualify for the next edition.”

The 2026 World Cup will be co-hosted by three countries, United States, Canada and Mexico.

The three countries featured in Qatar with the United States making it to the round of 16 while Mexico and Canada crashed out in the group stage.
