World Cup

Kanu Nwankwo targets semi final spot

Kanu-Nigeria_09062010Kanu is confident that Nigeria can take the World Cup by storm and progress to the semi-finals.

A strong run in the 1990s saw Nigeria reach the knockout stages of two successive tournaments, while they also won the Olympic gold medal in 1996.

Nigeria must negotiate a tricky group in South Africa containing highly-fancied Argentina, as well as Greece and South Korea.

But Kanu believes that not only can the Super Eagles make it through to the last 16, they can go much further and possible challenge for glory.

“Considering what we have done in ’94, ’96, ’98, everybody believes we are one of the big countries in Africa, so definitely we have to produce,” Kanu said.

“When we are not producing, that is when it is difficult. So the pressure comes.

“For me, I can say we are going to go up to the semi-finals, maybe even the final. We believe we can beat any team any time, but you’re going to have to play very well.”
