Nigeria was yesterday drawn in a very tough 2018 World Cup Group B comprising of African heavy weights Cameroon, Zambia and Algeria.
This did not come to many as a surprise because Nigeria with a poor FIFA ranking failed to be among the five seeds for the draw.
The Eagles had failed to qualify for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations to be staged in Gabon and it adversely affected Nigeria’s rating.
Consequently, Nigeria will be under tremendous pressure to qualify for a third straight World Cup having featured at South Africa 2010 and Brazil 2014.
Although a tough group, former Super Eagles midfielder, Moses Kpakor is confident Nigeria will qualify if she can put her house in order.
He told Daily Trust on Saturday that Nigeria is still a force to reckon with in African football so Nigerians should not entertain too much fear.
“It is indeed a group of death but it is not mission impossible.
“What we need to do to qualify is to prepare adequately. We need to put our house in order quickly.
“Whenever Eagles are written off, they spring a surprise so there is no need for Nigerians to surrender even before the battle, “he advised.
NFF is yet to decide on a permanent coach for the Super Eagles.
However, yesterday’s draw in Cairo, Egypt set the tone for the 2018 World Cup qualifying tournament which starts in October and ends in November 2017.
