Nigeria has been drawn in the second round of the 2018 World Cup qualifying tournament with minnows Djibouti or Swaziland, but Ahmed Musa has warned either team could pose a danger to the Super Eagles quest to feature at the global championship in Russia.

Ahmed Musa plays for top Russian club CSKA said the overall winners of the match-up between Djibouti and Swaziland must not be taken lightly by the star-studded three-time African champions when they clash in November.

“Looking at the name of the teams, Djibouti and Swaziland, they ought not to be a match for us, but such opponents are more dangerous that the known teams,” cautioned Ahmed Musa, who marked his World cup debut last year with a brace against Argentina.

“Personally, I know nothing about both countries. But we have to take them very seriously and prepare adequately well for them.

“All the same, I see us going past any of them to reach the mini-league stage of the qualifying tournament.”

Nigeria have featured in five World Cups – 1994, 1998, 2002, 2010, 2014 – reaching the knockout rounds thrice.
