WCQ: Super Eagles good enough to beat determined Zambian team - Henry Nwosu

Nigeria vs Zambia: Super Eagles in victory mood

2018 World Cup Qualifiers: Mikel assures of victory over Zambia

Nigeria are going to be hosting the team of Zambia for their fifth 2018 World Cup qualifiers on Saturday with one thought in mind: winning the game would undoubtedly secure a sixth appearance for Nigeria in Russian Federation since first qualifying in 1994.

The coach said that he had absolute confidence in not just his players but their management because they were on top of the cracker between the two countries.

"The game on Saturday will be a high pressure game and I feel with Nigeria playing at home they will be more under pressure which could work to Zambia's advantage", Bwalya said.

"Let them talk, I am not doing any talking for this match", a prominent Nigeria player told KweséESPN.

The second leg game of Group B between Nigeria and Zambia for the 2018 World Cup qualifier is scheduled for the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo. "Our focus is on our game". "All we want is the usual support and encouragement by everyone involved, including the fans who will turn out at the match venue".

Brazilian Olympic Committee President Carlos Nuzman arrested
Given the new facts, the IOC Ethics Commission may consider provisional measures while respecting Mr Nuzman's right to be heard. Brazilian authorities have said the behind-the-scenes dealings to win the vote amounted to a "criminal organisation".

Austria-based striker, Patson Daka, is enroute to link up with his Chipolopolo teammates in Uyo.

"I have spoken to them and the approach should be to take full control from the beginning and take the chances that come without being too anxious". As long as they coordinate themselves as a team, we shouldn't have any problem.

What time does the Nigeria v Zambia match start?

The two teams have played 18 matches in all, with the Eagles winning seven and Zambia winning five, with six draws.

Super Eagles victory over Zambia will be enough to see Nigeria return to the mundial after reaching the second round at the last FIFA World Cup in Brazil in 2014.
