Nigeria House of Representatives member and former Proprietor of women's football club Omidiran Babes, Alhaja Ayo Omidiran, says the Super Eagles will not be too concerned by the outcome of their 2018 World Cup qualifier against Algeria in Constantine (Friday), Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Stand-in captain against Algeria, Leon Balogun is excited to lead the Nigerian team in the absence of Captain John Mikel Obi, saying it is a great honour to wear the captain arm-band.

The Eagles squandered a few scoring opportunities in the first half. But the referee pointed to the spot to the surprise of both sets of players and the spectators.
