Former Super Eagles star George Finidi has expressed doubts on Nigeria’s chances of making an impact at the World Cup.

Nigeria are in Group D along with Iceland, Croatia and Argentina and having played at the round 16 in all but one of their World Cup appearances, Finidi says he doubts the current has what it takes to go beyond that stage at the tournament.

“I doubt if this team can take us to the next level, which is quarterfinal or semi-final of the World Cup,” said former Ajax Amsterdam winger Finidi.

“We have already played in the Round of 16, but we need to get to the next stage now.

“I hope the coach plays his best players though.”
