Zambia keeps tabs on Nigeria

Chipolopolo of Zambia is not resting on its oars to clip Nigeria’s Super Eagles’ wings when they meet on October 9 in the World Cup qualifying duel.
The team has been keeping tabs on Nigeria, especially after Eagles’ last home duel in the Nations Cup qualifier against Tanzania in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.
Although Nigeria managed to beat Tanzania 1-0, the Zambians have been having sleepless nights on how to subdue starstudded Eagles. The Zambians are particularly monitoring the exploit of Manchester City hitman, Kelechi Iheanacho and Arsenal thunder striker, Alex Iwobi’s outstanding showing at the English Premier League. Both players are reliably making waves with their respective clubs this season. Former Zambian coach, Patrick Kangwa, had predicted a tough match against Nigeria, saying it would be hard for his country to beat Eagles at home. Kangwa, who is also a one-time president of the Zambia Football Coaches Associations believes the Eagles would be difficult to swallow in front of their teeming fans.
Kangwa is also urging the Zambia Football Association to properly prepare the team.
“We have a lot of work to do to prepare the team for the World Cup, but we have all the resources and personnel. I am positive that we can do it before the qualifier next month.
“It is a difficult task but we are equal to the task,” Kangwa said.
The Super Eagles of Nigeria and Zambia are in Group B alongside, Algeria and Cameroon.
