  • W/Cup Qualifier: Super Eagles to train in Morocco for Algeria match

Having secured a ticket to the 2018 World Cup Nigeria play Algeria on the 6th of November in a dead rubber game.

Super Eagles Franco-German tactician Gernot Rohr, yesterday paid glowing tribute to all the players and officials of the Super Eagles following the team's qualification to play at next year's World Cup finals in Russian Federation.

The length of time he will be out has lead to coach Gernot Rohr of the Super Eagles casting a glance at Russian-Nigerian defender Brian Idowu.

Former worldwide Seyi Olofinjana believes that Nigeria should target the quarter-finals at the 2018 World Cup.

"We should be looking at how we can improve from the country's past records at the World Cup".

Remarkably, Nigeria is making her sixth FIFA World Cup appearance since its debut in United States of America '94.

Sources close to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) said the German is expected to disclose to the federation his World Cup programme before he travels to Europe.

With the home victory over the Zambians who have never featured in the Mundial, Nigeria has registered its sixth World Cup appearance after Brazil 2014.

Nigeria has reached the second round at three of their five World Cups.

It has been a disastrous campaign for them as Alcaraz only took charge of the team in April following the resignation of Leekens in February before their reverse tie against Nigeria.

Ogba further stressed wherever the Super Eagles will train ahead of the World Cup will be a strict decision of the NFF, adding that the important thing is for the football bosses to do their homework very well in terms of budgeting.
