This isn't gonna be a work over for Nigeria, as some Nigerians think. Nigeria needs to work hard to achieve victory. Underrating these guys may bring disastrous consequences for the Eagles.
The Walya Antelopes are a very courageous team bonded together by team spirit. They are known for one-twos style of play, mostly at the midfield. Mikel Obi and whoever is going to be at the midfield must keep a close eye on these two guys: Saint George, and Menyahel Teshome.
Nigeria and Ethiopia have met seven times with Nigeria winning four times, drawing twice and losing just once.
