Mouloudia Oujda of Morocco defender, Kalu Orji has tipped the Super Eagles of Nigeria to excel in at the World Cup in Russia, reports.

The former Kano pillars defender who recently joined the Moroccan outfit, told exclusively in Abuja that he was looking forward to his new challenge whilst also expecting a positive outing from the Eagles against the Czech Republic on Wednesday.

“I feel very happy and great about this move; obviously, I have taken a giant step in my career. The league is a competitive one because if you look at the last CHAN tournament earlier this year, they beat us to win the final which shows it a very good league.

“On the Super Eagles, I believe in the team because I have played with some of them. If they put in a lot of effort, I’m very sure they will achieve their purpose in Russia, which is to make Nigerians proud. They have a really good squad,” Kalu concluded.
