Former Malawi coach Tom Saintfiet has advised Nigeria to be cautions of Ethiopia ahead of the Fifa 2014 World Cup Qualifying Play-offs.

Saintfiet warned the Super Eagles to be mindful of Ethiopia’s fast counter-attacking play, spearheaded by Saladin Said.

“They have some good counter-attack strikers like Saladin Said who find it easy to score goals and so the Nigerian defence must be careful, because sometimes they are weak at the back, and so if Ethiopia can take advantage of that, then they will score goals,” Saintfiet said

The Play-off games are the final lap of qualification for the 2014 Fifa World Cup.

Nigeria will face Ethiopia in the first-leg on October 13 in Addis Ababa, while the second leg is billed to take place on November 16 at the U. J. Esuene Stadium in Calabar.
