Nigeria soccer quotes

Nwankwo Kanu
2 October 2006

"At the moment, I am 30 and the 2010 World Cup, another four years time. Many players have played in the World Cup, even at 40, so I don’t see why anybody should be talking about me retiring now. The Super Eagles need both the old and the new players because the game is not meant for the young ones only. The door is open to all players that are Nigerians, but you cannot say because there are new players then the old ones are no longer needed.” Nwankwo Kanu

Nwankwo Kanu
1 September 2006

"There are no more minnows as far as soccer is concerned in Africa. We will approach every match in the qualifying series for the 2008 African Cup of Nations in Ghana as well as the 2010 World Cup with all seriousness." Nwankwo Kanu

Dr Amos Adamu

Dr Amos Adamu is Nigeria’s Caf and Fifa executive committee member.
