Former Spain Coach Javier Clemente has stated that Nigeria’s Super
Eagles are Algeria’s main threat in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, which
starts in October.
Clemente, who is the current Libya coach, stated this in an Interview
with fifa.com as he talked about Libya’s chances and the other groups
as well. He said: “I haven’t taken a look at the other sections and I
don’t know anything about them.”
“I’ll have to take a look, though I have to say I’m not that
interested in the other sections. What I’m interested in is Libya’s
group. I’ve started to do my research on Congo DR, Guinea and Tunisia.
That’s what my objective is.
“If you’ve got Morocco and Algeria in the same group, then they’re
both good sides, though one of them has to get knocked out. If you ask
me, Algeria’s main rival in their group is Nigeria,” he concluded.
