After leading the Super Eagles to what turned out to be an easy qualification run to the final phase of qualifying in the 2010 World Cup/Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, Nigeria skipper Nwankwo Kanu has warned his teammates that more difficult task is what lies ahead.

Nigeria picked up all 18 points on offer from the last phase of qualifying and is now one of five seeds for the next round, with Kanu predicting that it will get even tougher.

"The next round is where it is going to get more difficult for the team," he said.

"If we think some games were difficult this time, they will be even more difficult in the next round," he added.

Kanu advised his mates, and the country's football ruling body, that whatever they did in the previous round counts for nothing when the next stage begin.

"It is very important for us to go to the World Cup and we all have to work hard as players and as managers," he said "Everybody have to do their part, we have to take every game seriously, as if it is the World Cup final because we cannot afford to make any mistake this time, he added.
