Nwankwo who plays for Italian Serie B side, Crotone, said in a chat with that though Nigeria has quality, the Island-nation must be respected.

“Comparing the quality in both teams, I think Nigeria has an upper hand.

“Seychelles are not a big footballing country, but we still have to respect them and not expect an easy game from them.

“You don’t get easy games in international football these days, so it is important for us to prepare well and give our best on match day.”
