Stephen Keshi’s men will play Iran then Bosnia-Herzegovina before their final group match against favourites Argentina.

“I strongly believe Nigeria will qualify for the round of 16 before their match against Argentina,” Westerhof said.

“For me, Iran and Bosnia are no worries for the Super Eagles. We will always beat them.”

Westerhof also disclosed that he has kept in regular contact with Keshi, who was his captain for many years.

“I’m in constant touch with Keshi and I always offer him my advice. I tell him to look out for players who are ready to fight on the pitch for the nation.”

Westerhof steered the national side to their first ever World Cup finals in 1994.
