    Nice up to date report about the Super Eagles arrival and preparations.

  • Greenturf 9 months ago

    A bit disappointing a large pool of players are not yet in camp. They have to wait till Tuesday which isn’t good enough. Setting commencing of preparation for Tuesday rather than Monday May have played in the players late arrival another reason could be that some players played matches Sunday for their clubs.On the other hands,Zambia has a full house already and preparation is in earnest.Camping in the Marcel Desailly ultra modern facilities in Accra will definitely put them in a better pedestrian for the match.It’s not yet uhuru.Nigerians fans have been boasting about demolishing Zambia but not taking notice that the Zambian’s are having a better preparation and the programme for the duel.I hope though for a Zambian rout but it won’t be easy because the zambians are coming prepared and determined to win this game buoyed by their new youthful and much better team than the ones we defeated October last year.

    • What do you mean this man

      Travelling is not as easy as you think of. Zambia also would have full house in training today Tuesday. Thank God they arrived safely. By God grace Nigeria would qualify on Saturday. God bless Nigeria! Up super eagles!!!!!!!

    • Donbenie 9 months ago

      Within the context of logistic feasibility I think all of them making it to the camp on Tuesday is realistic,Zambia are yet to have a full house contrary to your claim..

    • luomo 9 months ago

      training starting on Tuesday doesn’t really affect preparation…don’t forget that all these players are fit as at least 80% of them are engaged with their club weekly and also the coach won’t have to put them thru the basics..all they have to do in the few days together is to perfect their strategies and tactics for the game…don’t also forget that Zambia isn’t playing the same eagles they played in Ndola..this is a more improved Eagles team that have also gelled over time

      • christoph 9 months ago

        that is very correct , the Eagles team now is actually much improved
        than the last bcos the coach now knows better the individual abilities of the player and there is also better understanding among the players than when they first played Zambia away .

    • Traveling from Ghana will take its toll. It’s not too wise a decision.

  • Arogundade 9 months ago

    I’m Sure The Super Eagle Wil Qualify To Russia Come Rain Come Sun.Meanwhile Zambian National Teams Are Not Write Off Untill After 90mnt, God Bless Nigeria?

    Russia 2018 here come’s the great super eagles..

  • Greenturf 9 months ago

    I am being cautiously optimistic.A good team you know is better than the rookies you don’t.I haven’t seen the new Zambian team yet but news emalnating suggests they are a good side.So we should take them seriously.

    • luomo 9 months ago

      that the Algerians make them look good doesnt mean they are too good…Mozambique defeated this same Zambian team at their backyard..while o wont underate them dont lets also overate them too much

    I believe super Eagles will win this game. We have already overcame the most difficult games in this group. Whether the boys arrive late or early shuldn’t be much trouble, all they need is our support, GO EAGLES. RUSSIA HERE WE COME, Nigeria Is Next In Line

  • Mozambique defeated Zambia. Nigeria lost to south Africa in their own back yard.

  • The Super Eagles know what is at stake. Forget the boasting that Zambia has been doing. I liked what our coach said that the Zambian team will come here hoping to win and will open up the game. The Eagles usually struggle when a team is playing defensive against them. Win the match and go to the World cup; what better motivation can this be? All teams that have played the Super Eagles usually boast of beating us. The Cameroon team was the worst culprit here.
    Nigerians don’t worry we are going to the World Cup in Russia and this will be confirmed after Saturday match

  • If we don’t underrate them as we did Cameroon in the second leg, we’ll win easily, we have a better team. Football is more than determination. Determination will only expose them behind and open them up to easy defeat. Super Eagles should just play to their natural strength without fear but with respect without underrating them

    This is just a formality match for the Super Eagles and almost another training match for the Super Eagles, because Zambians have no feat players at all. News from the crevice is that 6 late injured players and they have the biggest problems drafting anyone in as replacement! Chipolopo, Chipolopo are in a bigger messed. Nigeria 5- Zambia 1. We’re not going to have mercy at all! We cannot spare you because of plights, we need this world cup! Moreover our Captain Mikel Obi has a Russian wife. So what do think? Zambians you’re going down.Kalusha my friend,I am sorry we can’t help you,Russia world cup isn’t for you this time,serious!

    • Bishop Joseph Santus Okpara be careful how you set yourself us up for failure you are not God. instead of talking like this, be humble and quietly confident pray and don’t think you are God.. you peoples mouth got us humbled against South Africa. You kept quiet for Cameroon because we were eating humble pie and we won.. Now you are opening your mouth and setting us up for disappointment against Zambia like you did with Bafana Bafana by thinking the game is won before we have played you are really pissing me off with your arrogance because I know it brought us nothing but badluck against Bafana Bafana. Be quiet and watch with faith and Super eagles will succeed in jesus name. Thank you

    @Greenturf
    So camping at ultra modern sports facility is the edge?
    Football is about tactics & strategy not whether you camp on mount Everest.
    My scoreline for Saturday;
    Nigeria 7
    Zambia 0
    Insha Allah

  • Bishop Joseph Santus Okpara 9 months ago

    Iwunze did not know why you brought God into this! But you’re right,just because you’re entitled to you opinion like everyone else. I didn’t comment about our match with Bafana Bafana,so you’re wrong!Because I wasn’t happy then,that the Super Eagles went to Europe to trained for a match that will be played in Africa,coupled with so many new boys introduced to our team who needs to acclamatized in Nigeria before that match with Bafana Bafana,you see, that was a no no, the only tournaments I commented on was the home Super Eagles to tournaments that was just concluded in Ghana and that was before we beat Ghana 2- 0 Because people were so afraid about our qualifiers to the next round hence we are meeting Ghana the host country. I said that we didn’t produced our best players but I insisted that we will win Ghana Black Star and won! But having said this, apart from the way you brought God into this, you’re right with the rest of your comments. Because a Christian is not good to be speaking carelessly. But I was angry about my Zambian friend who was making fun of me because we lost to Bafana Bafana I want that to register in his brain. But We are going to beat Zambian silly believed me. Please don’t be angry I didn’t meant to hurt your feelings. God bless you my brother.
