Written by Idongesit Atakpa on October 6, 2023
A former Super Eagles goalkeeper, Idah Peterside, has said Nigeria would be ready to host the World Cup in the next 40 years at which the country would have experienced some level of stability.
Speaking on Friday’s edition of Sunrise Daily, Peterside expressed scepticism about the nation’s readiness to host the World Cup anytime soon.
“On record presently, the only playing field which we have is a grass stadium and it is the Uyo stadium, but 20 anything(years) is still very long maybe in the next 40 years, we would have had some kind of stability,” he said.
Nigeria last hosted a global football tournament back in 2009, which was the U-17 FIFA World Cup with Switzerland emerging as champions and Golden Eaglets taking the runner-up spot.
