The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has said it will engage "an experienced coach" to guide the Super Eagles during the 2018 World Cup qualification.

The NFF’s Director of Communications, Ademola Olajire, made the assertion while reacting to the draws for the 2018 World Cup in Russia in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Lagos.

Nigeria is drawn alongside Zambia, Algeria and Cameroon in the draws made on Friday at the African Football Confederations (CAF) Headquarters in Egypt.

It is noteworthy that Cameroon has appeared seven times in the mundial, while Nigeria has featured five times and Algeria four times.

"The first major task for the football house is to get an experienced coach who will be saddled with the responsibility of the qualification.

"Our first reaction to the qualifiers is to source for an experience coach to tutor the team. We believe in the ability of our players, but they need a capable hand to tutor them.

"We are not afraid of any team, or their ranking in Africa, our own responsibility is to ensure the qualification of the Super Eagles. That is sacrosanct,’’ Olajire said.
