Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) president Amaju Pinnick strongly believes that the Super Eagles will qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals.

This is after Nigeria drew 1-1 with Cameroon in Yaounde in the return leg match of the Group B qualifying match on Monday.

Pinnick expressed confidence that the Eagles would wrap up the World Cup ticket when they host Zambia in Uyo next month.

“This was the toughest World Cup qualifying group in Africa and the Super Eagles have been excellent," Pinnick told NFF's official website.

"I praise them for their efforts since the qualifying campaign started and I want them to go for the three points against Zambia so that we wrap up the ticket quickly without further delay.“

Everyone called it the Group of Death, but we are alive to tell the story, and a very good story at that," he added.

"We await Zambia and I believe the sweet story will be completed in great style.”

Nigeria will qualify for their sixth FIFA World Cup finals with one point from their last two matches of the campaign. (
