The desire and prayer of every team are to win the World Cup which is regarded as one of the biggest football competitions in history. In recent years, we have seen top European teams win the World Cup completion, but an African country is yet to win the World Cup.
The World Cup has mostly been donated by European countries and South American countries. Examples of some of these European and South American countries include Brazil, Germany, Italy, Argentina, and others.
Next year, the World Cup competition would return to our screens as top countries from different parts of the world would be hoping to win the completion. Among these countries, one African Country that may likely win the World Cup is the Nigeria national team.
The Nigerian national team may likely emerge as the first team to win the World Cup competition next year due to 2 reasons. Check out the 2 reasons below.
1) Front-Line Attackers
The first reason why Nigeria may be the first African team to win the World Cup competition is due to their front-line attackers.
The World Cup competition which would begin next year would feature one of the best attack-line which comprises Iheanacho, Victor Osimhen, and Paul Onuachu. All 3 players are currently among the best strikers in Europe as they are doing very well for their team.
The combination of Iheanacho’s shot power, Victor Osimhen’s burst-up play, and the strength of Paul Onuachu may likely cause problems for their opposition which would be a boost to the team.
2) Defensive Strength
The second reason why Nigeria may be the first African team to win the World Cup is due to their defensive strength. Nigeria has a very strong defense as the defenders are currently doing well.
The solidity of the defense is also a result of the presence of one of the best defensive midfielders in Wilfred Ndidi. Overall, the defensive strength of Nigeria may likely be key to Nigeria winning the World Cup competition next year.
