Nigeria did not perform too badly in the recent African Cup Of Nations, eventually finishing third, and they will hope to build on the performance in the 2010 World Cup. Although they have little to no chance of winning the World Cup, they will surely be hoping that their chances are helped by playing in Africa and that they may be able to reach the quarter finals, which would go down as a remarkable achievement for the country.
Nigeria will be playing in Group B at the World Cup, a group that will see them take on Argentina, one of the favourites in the World Cup outright betting, as well as Greece and South Korea who most bookies think have a worse chance than Nigeria of winning the World Cup. this must give Nigeria plenty of optimism that they can qualify from the group as runners up at the very least, although Argentina are not at their strongest and a couple of bad performances from them could even see Nigeria top the group.
Presuming Nigeria can qualify from their group they won’t have an impossible game in the second round of the World Cup, they are going to face one of France, Mexico, South Africa or Uruguay. all those sides are tough but on their day beatable. It is probably best to play the odds and expect Nigeria to get out of the group but after that they could find things a bit too much so the Second Round could be the end of them.
