World Cup Qualifier: Nigeria gets dates for Ethiopia clashes | NIGERIA ENTERTAINMENT | Top Nigeria Entertainment Site

Ethiopia will face  on October 13 in Addis Ababa in the first leg of a 2014 World Cup play-off, officials said Wednesday.
“The first game is here, the home game, and then they will go after to Nigeria,” Ethiopian Football Federation spokesman, Samsom Getachew, told AFP.
The teams will face off again in Nigeria on November 16, and the overall winners qualify for the 32-nation global football showpiece in Brazil next June and July.
Ethiopia defeated Central African Republic 2-1 this month to win Group A and eliminate South Africa from the World Cup.
The victory means Ethiopia’s ‘Waliya Antelopes’ will face much tougher opponents in Nigeria, who beatEthiopia 2-0 en route to winning the Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa last February.
While Nigeria’s ‘Super Eagles’ use a mix of local and Europe-based stars, the bulk of the ‘Antelopes’ squad is home based.
