    For me, we have played the most difficult games: Zambia away, Cameroon away, Algeria at home and Cameroon at home. The remaining two games should be the easiest. If we blow this, we have ourselves to blame. GOD FORBID. Nigeria 4 Zambia 0.

      You have said it all man. I start to have believe that the eagles will make it to russia when we won our first game in zambia and algeria drew at hime to cameroon. From then i knew the mission impossible seem possible if only rohr, his players and the nff can take advantage. That win in zambia may seem easy but was the toughest match the team have played so far in the qualifiers and also is the edge we have against other teams in the group. The tactics to deploy by rohr to me is very simple; the zambians are the ones who are desperate to get a result and will come out blazzing from the from the first minute so i sense rohr will advice his wards to sit make and catch them on counter attacks. With the 2 moses on the flanks and a physical ighalo who’s hold up play against cameroon was top notch spearheading the attack i see zambia conceeding more than a single goal in the first half.

    Nigeria 1-0 Zambia is enough. A win by whatever margin is OK for Nigeria. We don’t boast because in football, anything is possible. Beating Algeria has blinded the Zambians.I’m disappointed in chipolopolo boys.
