"We are targeting four points in the double-header", said the Belgian, who led the Indomitable Lions to win the Africa Cup of Nations in February in Gabon.

Today at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo, christened, Nest of Champions, Nigeria's Super Eagles will be up against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in the first game of a double-header in the race for a ticket to the 2018 edition of the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Egypt is on the way up and Ghana is going down in Group E. Egypt has two wins from two matches, with Mohamed Salah a scorer in both victories.

"The list of players makes the difference, not so young, more of experienced players".

Of course, Eagles have missed the continental showpiece on two occasions back-to-back.

The banker-turned politician knows the weight of a promise.

The Carthage Eagles will surely take comfort, however, from a recent AFCON qualifying victory over Egypt, a triumph which showcased the kind of grit and tenacity that could unsettle the Leopards.

"We are here because there is nothing as good as appreciating people, especially when the people are working for the general good".

Now at the team's camp are Captain Mikel John Obi and 22 other players.

He added: " We want to go to the World Cup; it's as simple as that. Ahead is the toughest test yet, a trip to Tunisia on Friday and a return game at home against the Tunisians four days later.

'I always pray and think about Carl Ikeme everyday, and I have told my teammates for us to win this match for him as we can't afford to lose the World Cup ticket. The truth is you can't play well in every game; a win is a win. And we're going to win in Uyo. It doesn't matter how well we play.
