Super Eagles ignoring Zambia mind games

The Zambian senior national team, have rejected the Le Méridien Hotel as their base ahead of the all important Russian Federation 2018 qualifying match against the Super Eagles of Nigeria on Saturday, October 7.

"The Eagles want to win again for Carl", Rohr said.

The other mini-leagues, topped by the Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso, can not be decided after the penultimate series of matches, whatever the results.

Nigeria will face second-placed Zambia in Uyo with their World Cup fate in their own hands.

"We know how important the match is; that is enough motivation to go all out and give our very best".


Last month's convincing 4-0 win over Cameroon saw the Super Eagles eliminate the reigning African champions and establish a three point advantage at the top of the group with two games to play.

He said while a few of his players were injured, his team's spirit was not dampened at all by this, saying "injuries are a part of the game of football".

Victory for Gernot Rohr's side against the Chipolopolo on Saturday will secure a spot for the Super Eagles at Russian Federation.

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr does not expect another easy win against Zambia, who would draw level with Nigeria on 10 points with a win. "So we have to have a good preparation and also change tactics, also to be more risky and to be able to surprise them", he concluded. I believe. Let's support the super eagles to victory.

"The current squad has players who can score at any given opportunity and the boys are in good form coming into this match".
