‘Nigerians still interested in W’Cup matches’

As the countdown to the biggest football festival in Qatar continues, Nigeria will not be part of football’s showpiece as the Super Eagles failed to secure qualification following a play-off defeat to Ghana last March.

But Gossy Ukanwoke, Managing Director, KingMakers, the parent company of betting form BetKing, believes Nigeria not playing at the World Cup will not stop the excitement the tournament brings, noting that country’s teeming fans will still make out time to watch the Qatar 2022 World Cup matches.

“If Nigeria is playing, the excitement will be top-notch, but if Nigeria is not playing, we still have West Africans that are playing,” Ukanwoke told The APROKOVIBES.

“Nigerians love football and people are still going to enjoy it and have fun during the World Cup. We hope that Nigeria will qualify for the next World Cup. The reality is that the same guys who are playing at the World Cup play in the different leagues that Nigerians follow and they know these players. So, if Lionel Messi plays for PSG and will be playing for Argentina at the World Cup, Nigerians are still going to follow those games. It’s really about the excitement and the football itself.

“So, Nigeria might not play, and some fans might specifically want to engage in the World Cup because of Nigeria, but all the other players that they normally watch are still going to play in Qatar.”

The tournament is scheduled to take place in Qatar from November 20 to December 18.
