2018 World Cup: Nigeria Gets Easy Draw, Drawn with Djibouti and Swaziland



The Super Eagles of Nigeria on Saturday were picked as one of the top ranked teams in Africa. The three-time African champions have been drawn with the winner of the game between Djibouti and Swaziland.

Nigeria made it safely into the second round of the African qualifiers. The match, which took place in St Petersburg, Russia, was well attended by Cameroonian soccer star, Samuel Eto’o Fills, and many other dignitaries who came from Africa and other continents to grace the colorful occasion.

The 2010 World Cup hosts South Africa face a tough second round meeting against Angola; the African champions Ivory Coast will play either Liberia or Guinea Bissau, and the 2015 runners-up Ghana will face either Comoros or Lesotho.

Meanwhile Algeria, Africa’s highest ranked nation, will play the winner of Tanzania and Malawi match.

Nigeria, under new coach Sunday Oliseh, has been charged by his employer the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to qualify the country for the soccer fiesta in Russia 2018.
