Nigeria vs. Ethiopia, 2014 World Cup qualifying: Preview and TV schedule

Gallo Images

Thanks to Emmanuel Emenike's brace in the first leg, Nigeria are 90 minutes away from a trip to Brazil.

Nigeria just need to finish what they started with a 2-1 first leg victory to book their place in next summer's World Cup. The Super Eagles welcome Ethiopia holding a one goal lead thanks to Emmanuel Emenike's brace back in mid-October.

Ethopia had taken the lead in the first leg thanks to Behailu Assefa but Fenerbahce forward Emenike's two goals in the final 25 minutes, including a last minute penalty, put the Super Eagles in front going into Saturday's second leg.

Kenneth Omeruo, Reuben Gabriel and Bright Dike have all been called in for Nigeria but Nosa Igiebor and Uche Nwofor will both miss out due to injuries. Ethiopia will get a boost with the return of their star forward Getaneh Kebede. The 21-year-old missed the first leg with a knee injury and has scored four goals in qualifying so far.
