Ronaldo De Lima Expects Shocks From Nigeria


Brazilian soccer legend, Ronaldo de Lima has disclosed that he is expecting shocks at this year’s World Cup from the Super Eagles and is tipping the Nigerian team to spring surprises in Russia.

Ronaldo said he watched the Eagles go down 2-1 to England recently and they will need to be better organised at the back and says they would need to step up their game in order to shine according to their potentials.

“I watched their match against England and The Three lions should have been at least three goals up in the first half but they lost their chances. But all the same a tournament is different, so Nigeria can spring surprises.

“They need to be more organised in the defence. But I will still tip Croatia and Argentina to qualify from that group. Both teams have pedigree with great character playing in the top leagues in the world,” said the ex-player fondly called ‘The Phenomenon’ during his heyday.
