Coach Gernot Rohr has revealed that 11 points from the ‘Group of Death’ will qualify Nigeria to a sixth World Cup final.
On Sunday, the Super Eagles won three valuable points on the road in Zambia and welcome Algeria to Uyo next month.
They lead their qualifying group after Algeria were forced to a 1-1 draw by Cameroon in Blida.
“I think we need 11 points to be first of the group, but all the teams have a good chance to qualify (for the World Cup),” the experienced Rohr said at a press briefing.
“We all know that it is very difficult to win a game in the qualifiers especially away in the first game. But we did it.”
The Franco-German further said that despite the Eagles winning start, they need to improve before a November 12 clash against Algeria in Uyo.
