Zambia national team coach Wedson Nyirenda and skipper Kennedy Mweene are full of confidence of upsetting Nigeria in Uyo on October 7 to take World Cup qualification in Group B down to the final match of the series.
Basking in their impressive double over Algeria to come into contention for the sole Group B ticket, the Chipolopolo say they can beat Nigeria in Uyo on October 7 to take World Cup qualification in Group B down to the wire.
Zambia have been unbeaten in their last seven matches, which include CHAN and World Cup qualifiers, to show they are the team on form.
And their coach declared: “Now we will focus on Nigeria. They are a good team and will desperately want a win. But I have a big team who can pick a win and that’s what I am planning for.”
South Africa-based goalkeeper Mweene is also full of confidence of upsetting the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
“The game against Nigeria is all about preparation,” he said. “I am confident we can win in Nigeria with adequate preparations, like we had (for Algeria).
“It will definitely be tough because it will be a do or die affair, we are three points behind, which we can meet up now.
“We have a good team who can do it. All the players have shown commitment and dedication. The morale is high in camp and that’s what gives us the motivation.”
Zambia lost the first leg 2-1 to Nigeria at home in Ndola and will be hoping to spoil the Super Eagles party who haven’t lost a World Cup qualifier in 36 games.
