Don't be surprised if the Pharaohs have already confirmed their World Cup berth by the end of the worldwide break, unless Ghana can complete a clean sweep against Congo-Brazzaville. The team seems not to have lost yet, but two draws 1: 1 with Algeria and Zambia brought only 2 points to the team's box.

The competition between Nigeria and Cameroon will draw the most attention when World Cup qualifying in Africa returns with two matches squeezed into six days.

Latest addition to the Super Eagles Ola Aina has spoken about representing Nigeria after spells with the English age grade teams.

Ikechukwu Ezenwa from Nigerian club FC Ifeanyi Ubah has accepted the challenge of manning the goal against the Indomitable Lions and insists he is sufficiently prepared for the huge clash.

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr told reporters on Tuesday that he would have a clear idea of his starting team after a closed training session on Wednesday.

What time does the Nigeria vs Cameroon match start?

The 27-year-old England global had also been in talks with Watford and Turkish side Galatasaray this summer. "But this is a very ambitious club".


The other continental giants who appear particularly vulnerable are Ghana, who also took just one point from their opening two matches and are already five points behind Group E leaders Egypt.

When asked why they chose to stay in a different hotel, an official of the Cameroon revealed that they did that out of fear of being put under a spell by Nigerian witchcraft.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria always stay at the luxury hotel where the NFF also host the visiting teams. Yes, but it's a win for us.

We have a great team. "Should we fail to achieve that target, I do not think it will be possible to qualify for Russia", Broos said.

Even as we commend the performance, sense of goal and dedication of the D'Tigress and their handlers, we urge the Super Eagles and, indeed, all national teams to borrow a leaf from D'Tigress and fly the Nigerian flag high at every given opportunity. We want to go to the World Cup.

But every team has the ambition of going to the World Cup.
