2018 W/Cup Draw: Ahmed Musa Fears Djibouti, Swaziland


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.
