Super Eagles Aiming for 2026 FIFA World Cup Berth, Ndidi Asserts

by Ikeoluwa Juliana Ogungbangbe

Wilfred Ndidi, a central figure in Nigeria’s Super Eagles midfield, has passionately articulated his aspiration to ensure Nigeria’s presence in the 2026 FIFA World Cup, according to Soccernet.ng.

The shadows of their missed chance at the recent World Cup in Qatar loom large. The West African team faced a disheartening aggregate loss to their arch-nemesis, Ghana’s Black Stars, in a pivotal playoff match, a memory that has since fueled their determination to qualify this time around.

Under the strategic leadership of Coach Jose Peseiro, the Super Eagles are gearing up for a rigorous journey in the World Cup qualifiers. They are well positioned in a competitive group, sharing the stage with powerhouses such as South Africa, as well as formidable teams like Benin, Rwanda, Lesotho, and Zimbabwe.

Basking in the glory of their recent triumph over Sao Tome and Principe, Ndidi has took a moment to underscore the profound impact of this victory, viewing it as a springboard for the critical World Cup qualifier matches lying ahead. He candidly conveyed the team’s collective feeling of remorse for their absence in the last World Cup and emphasized their unyielding commitment to rewriting that narrative in the ensuing qualifiers.

Revisiting their recent past, Ndidi remarked, “Being spectators during the Qatar World Cup was an emotional setback for both us and our dedicated fanbase. We deeply understand the heartache we caused our fans, and we are resolute in our mission to redeem ourselves and make them proud. Our gaze is set firmly ahead; we’re rallying together, aiming to make strides with cohesion and optimism.”

The pivotal journey for Nigeria to secure their berth in the 2026 World Cup initiates with their opening clash against Lesotho’s Crocodiles on the calendar for November 13.
