2018 World Cup Qualifiers: Super Eagles ramp up preparations to host Algeria in Group D

Nigeria have been going through their final preparations at their base in Uyo, ahead of their crunch World Cup qualifier against Algeria later on Saturday. The stakes are higher than ever just one round into the third phase of qualification to Russia and the Super Eagles were put through their paces on Friday by German coach Gernot Rohr. The West Africans bagged a 1-0 win over Tanzania, before going on to defeat Zambia 2-1 to lead the group in October. The team is currently undergoing a resurgence under the new coach and a win over their North African counterparts would see them extend their lead at the top of Group B to six points.
