Nigeria’s World Cup qualifying group is worse than ‘Group of Death’ according to the president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

The three-time African champions will have to go past Algeria, Cameroon and Zambia to qualify for a sixth World Cup.

“Nigeria have been drawn in a group beyond ‘Group of Death’,” said NFF boss Amaju Pinnick.

“Algeria are Africa’s leading team, Cameroon have won the African Cup of Nations four times and have featured at the World Cup seven times, and Zambia have also proved themselves.”

The Eagles, under a broke NFF, will begin the final stage of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers away in Zambia on Sunday.

Both teams last clashed at AFCON 2013 hosted by South Africa and it ended in a 1-1 draw.

In November, they will welcome Algeria to Uyo in continuation of the series. (NAN)
