    Based on the FIFA rankings, SE will be seeded along other top ten teams, this means SE won’t be drawn in the same group with the likes of Afcon defending champion, Algeria, Egypt, Ghana, Tunisia, Senegal, Morocco, Cameroun,Mali, and Burkina Faso. It’s definitely going to be another interesting world cup qualifiers in Africa. I believe SE has what it takes to qualify from any group it finds it’self. The thir round of the qualifiers will definitely be the most interesting and tension soaked encounter, all the qualified 10 teams will be be hoping to be in Mundial. I cant wait for the draw to be made. Go SE Go Africa!!!

     
    • Yes, however there is the possibility of drawing Ivory Coast, Uganda and South Africa in what will be a group of anxiety.

      The Super Eagles cannot afford to be complacent.

      When Rohr took over, he was an unknown quantity. But now, other African oppositions know his methods, ways and approaches. If the Algerian coach can neutralise him in the Afcon semi-finals so can others.

      Only a careless fan will be carried away by the decent collection of players that we are able to assemble at the moment.

      Our players are decent, vibrant, exciting and also very beatable.

      I look forward to the draws and when hostilities begin.

      On paper, we have what it takes to qualify from any group in Africa but the problem is: football is not played on paper!
