The number of points needed by Nigeria to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia has been pegged at 13, after winning their first two qualifiers games as against other group teams.
Super Eagles currently lead group B with six points, two more than Cameroon who are in second place with Zambia and Algeria on one point apiece. Nigeria will next play Cameroun.
A total of seven points from their remaining four games or even less pending on results elsewhere will seal Nigeria’s place at the World Cup in Russia.
However coach Gernot Rohr has refuted speculations that his team will play to earn the required points in their remaining games pending on the opponents.
” We won’t treat any game differently, we want to win all our remaining games. That is the aim, we don’t want to give our opponents any opening. Our aim and approach to every game will be that of a Cup final” He told Owngoalnigeria.com.
