General Secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Mohammed Sanusi, has said that the federation expects more commitment from the Super Eagles when they campaign at the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup, reports.

Sanusi, who admitted that the team had shown great commitment throughout the qualifying series of the World Cup, harped on them doing more for the country when they get to Russia.

“What we expect from the team is what they have been doing before, which is being committed to the job.

“They have shown a lot of commitment, revealing that they are ready to die for their country and that is why God assisted us to qualify for the World Cup with a match at hand.

“They have demonstrated that trust and commitment, showing that money is not everything. Even when the money was not there, they played without asking, not to talk of when there is money available.

“We are now hopeful that they will deliver at the bigger stage in Russia,” Sanusi said.

Nigeria became the first African country to qualify for the 32-team World Cup with a game to spare, and are pitched in Group D alongside familiar foes Argentina, Iceland and Croatia.
