I mean, they deserve it. They qualified in the hardest group convincingly and looked composed and impressive doing it.

Hard to argue against them right about now.

Yep. Nigeria has posted the strongest showing so far in the WCQers in the CAF zone. We were forced to raise our game when we found ourselves in a group of death.

Quote:
10) Nigeria
Nigeria have started to get their house in order and there is distinct optimism around a generation of players that looks their best hope of a last-eight spot in some years. Victor Moses, Wilfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho and Alex Iwobi add Premier League quality; the coach, the German Gernot Rohr, has moulded a balanced and organised side that can be lethal on the counterattack and maybe, after a series of nondescript World Cup appearances, Nigeria are now equipped for something more.

Meaningless until we are involved. Where is Uganda or Zambia?

He made it sound like the rankings were from an authoritative source.
