#MUFCMundial: Nigeria

As Nigeria approach their final round of group stage fixtures in this year's World Cup, United fan Kelvin Olasupo evaluates his home nation's chances of progressing further in the competition.

Which country are you representing and why?

I’m supporting Nigeria because I’m a Nigerian.

How far do you think your team will go in the tournament - can they reach the final and win?

I think Nigeria can go all the way to the final if their display against Iceland is anything to write about.
