He said his confidence is based on the fact that it is the youngest Super Eagles squad Nigeria has ever produced but was quick to add that that the team has not been together for long.
Dokunmu said: “With a bit of luck the team can go far because they have one thing going for them, the youthfulness in the team, even when they are down they have the strength to always come back, they keep going and never get tired and that is good for the team,”.
The All Stars boss said he has absolute confidence in the national team Manager Gernot Rohr because of his performance and results.
On the idea of injecting more players into the team, Dokunmu he would not subscribe to that because of the limited time to the championship.
“Going to the World Cup proper is not where you go to build a team. The home based players were at CHAN and we all saw out it played out. If you invite a local player today, once he played for the Eagles once, twice he is no longer a local player. The best bet is to get our best legs from all over the world to prosecute the World Cup.
