Ighalo: Eagles Will Beat Zambia With Hard Work And God’s Grace

By James Agberebi:
Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo has expressed confidence that Nigeria will secure the the  2018 FIFA  World Cup ticket with an outright win over Zambia in Uyo through hard work and God’s grace, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.‎
The Eagles will confirm qualification for   FIFA  Russia 2018  if they beat Group B rivals Chipolopolo of Zambia.
The three-time Africa Cup of Nations winners top the Group B of the African qualifiers for Russia 2918 with 10 points, three points ahead of Zambia who are in the second position on seven points.
Cameroon and Algeria who are already out of the race for sole Group B ticket are third and fourth, on three points and one point respectively.
Ighalo who was on target in the Eagles’ 4-0 win against Cameroon on matchday-three in Uyo, however stressees that victory will be achieved only through hard work, determination and by God’s grace.
“I am expecting a tough game on Saturday but with hard work, determination and mostly by the grace of God, we are going to win. We will qualify for the World Cup. We have what it takes,” the NFF’s  Tweet quotes Ighalo as saying…

    Thanks Ighalo. Its only through hard work and God’s grace o.

    The expectations keep going to high heavens and I refuse to fall for this!
    I would have preferred your title to be NIGERIANS DON’T EXPECT! because as oga Mumini Alao rightly pointed out “…Quite often, the Eagles have pleasantly surprised us when they were written off and have disappointed when expectation was high.” And a few examples which RESULTED IN NONE QUALIFICATIONS below will suffice to put the Super Eagles on their toes.
    Remember Nigeria v Tunisia 0-1 in Lagos 1977
    Remember Nigeria v Algeria 0-2 in Lagos 1981
    Remember Nigeria v Zambia 0-0 in Lagos 1985
    Remember Nigeria v Angola 1-1 in Kano 2005
    Remember Nigeria v Guinea 2-2 in Lagos 2011
    Remember Nigeria v Congo 2-3 in Calabar 2014

    He who has ears… A word is enough for the wise and Super Eagles I believe shall be wise come Saturday.

    Goodluck Super Eagles!

  • What else does Ayo need to guarantee victory despite Ighalo’s assurance coupled with the help of God.Nigeria will get Russia 2018 World cup ticket tomorrow
