Seyi Olofinjana: Nigeria Must Reach World Cup Last Eight

Former Nigerian player Seyi Olofinjana has urged the Super Eagles to target the quarter-finals at the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup.
"We've been to a few World Cups in recent years, and we need to be looking at progressing further - rather than crashing out in the early stages," Olofinjana told BBC Sport.

"I think the country should be looking at perhaps the quarter-finals.”
Meanwhile, only three African teams have ever reached the last eight at a World Cup - Cameroon were the first to do so in 1990.

They were followed by Senegal in 2002 while the Black Stars of Ghana missed a penalty and failed to become the first African team to make the semi-finals in 2010.
