However, the defender of the Super Eagles is excited about the chance that the African champions can reach the world football presentation three times
Solomon Kwambe believes that Cape Verde is the biggest challenge for Nigeria’s ambitions for the 2022 World Cup.
The Super Eagles close horns at the Blue Sharks in continuation of the qualifying campaign on Tuesday at the Estadio Municipal Aderito Sena in Mindelo.
Both teams drew 0-0 in their only match that was on its way to Nigeria’s triumph in Africa’s Africa Cup of Nations in 2013.
In his mind ahead of Tuesday night’s match, the 2013 Fifa Confederations Cup warns that Gernot Rohr’s team should be wary of Bubista’s team – which he described as a ‘good side’.
“We played Cape Verde before the Africa Cup of Nations in 2013, and from this experience I can tell you that it is not a bad side,” said Kwambe. Purpose.
‘Although they are not a popular team in Africa, they are a very good team. So I feel that this will be the biggest threat of the Super Eagles in the race to Qatar 2022.
“Even if I think so, we need to watch out for Liberia and the Central African Republic, which can be difficult and even cause problems.”
One factor that will strengthen Nigeria’s confidence in Mindelo is the fact that Cape Verde have lost two of their last three World Cup qualifiers played at home.
Given the quality in Rohr’s squad, the FC Tulsa star sees the country make its seventh World Cup appearance in the Middle East.
“The team now has a lot of talented players, and that’s a good sign for the country, because these players will serve us with the necessary energy to win matches,” he said.
‘With luck on our side, I see how we choose one of the tickets to represent Africa in Qatar. We started our match with a win note against Liberia in Lagos, and that is an indication that we are on course to qualify.
“We must avoid complacency and not look down on other teams in our group. If this is done, there are no problems.
‘It’s not just about the players and the technical team; every Nigerian has a role to play in this qualification campaign. ‘
