Samuel Ikpea, the Secretary General of Nigeria Football Supporters Club and other Sports NFSCS, on Tuesday warned the Super Eagles against underrating the Walya Antelopes of Ethiopia.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Eagles are scheduled to meet their East African team in a two-legged encounter between 15 October and 15 November in a play-off that will see one of the country qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Ikpea told NAN in Lagos that the players should not in any way underestimate their opponents, and stressed that the play-off would not be a stroll in the park for the Eagles.
