Nigeria And Algeria In African Qualifiers For The 2018 FIFA World Cup Group Of Death

Draw Results For Russia 2018 (CAF Qualifiers) 
The draw of the Group Phase of The FIFA World Cup Russia 2018 Africa Qualifiers took place on Friday, 24th June, 2016 at the CAF Secretariat in Cairo, Egypt.

Nigeria, Cameroon and Algeria were pitted against one another in the "Group of Death" while Ghana are drawn in the same group with the Pharaohs of Egypt in the African Qualifiers For The Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The Super Eagles Fans had widely hoped for an easiest group since it will be possible for them to qualify if they play with teams that are not their fierce rivals.

Unfortunately, they were thrown into the most difficult group which have made the fans to start doubting about their possibility of securing a ticket for the world most prestigious soccer show.

The Group B has the best ranked team in Africa. That is, the desert foxes of Algeria who are ranked number one in Africa and 32nd in the world.

Joining Nigeria in the group are Cameroon and Zambia, with the latter being the least-ranked team in the group. Zambia is ranked 20th in Africa and 79th in the world, while Cameroon is sitting on the 10th position in the log for Africa rankings and 58th in the world, and Nigeria occupying the 12th spot in Africa and 61st in the world.
