Fans have reacted to the statement made by the Caf head that the Super Eagles can win the World Cup.

Caf President Dr. Patrice Motsepe exuded confidence Nigeria has what it takes not to only make it to the World Cup final but win it.

The Super Eagles missed out on the just concluded global competition in Qatar after falling to Ghana in the playoffs.

Furthermore, despite qualifying for the World Cup six times previously, Nigeria have never gone past the Round of 16 and to some fans, it was absurd Motsepe could think of them winning the trophy.

Here are their reactions.

    As for the current squad, it's a no for me. The 1994 squad had the capacity to win the World Cup. Actually, that squad owes the entire African continent an apology. With love from Zambia - Zulu Simon
