The saying that “to be the best you must beat the best” is not just a cliche any more since Nigeria FA authorities and fans fancy the Super Eagles achieving the unthinkable at next year’s World Cup in Russia.
So literally, the likes of Amaju Pinnick – the NFF President – could see their wish come true with Nigeria dropped in Pot 4 and could, potentially, get to face the toughest oppositions in the group stages of the World Cup.
Pots 1 and 2 contain the real heavyweights of the game and the decision was arrived at based on “sporting principles”.
It is noteworthy that the World governing body confirmed in September that teams will be allocated to pots based on the October 2017 edition of the FIFA ranking.
FIFA announced that no teams from the same confederation, with the exception of UEFA, which could have up to two teams in the same group, will be drawn into the same group.
The Final Draw will take place on Friday 1 December at Moscow’s State Kremlin Palace.
