Semitoje: Eagles Defence Must Be Focused Against The  Pacy Zambians

By Izuchukwu Okosi:                                                                                                                                Former Nigeria defender, Isaac Semitoje, has warned that a very focused defence line  by would be key to Super Eagles’  victory against Zambia in Saturday’s decisive 2018 World Cup qualifier at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium Uyo, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.‎

Gernot Rohr’s team will clinch Group B ticket with a win against the Zambians. Super Eagles won the corresponding fixture  2-1 in Ndola last year.

“The defenders must be wary of the pacy Zambians. I hope they remain focused all through the match,’ Semitoje told Completesportsnigeria.com.‎

“Staying disciplined is key to getting the three points tomorrow (Saturday).

“But our players should know that this match is the most important match for the country .

“It” is about winning, and  again the first goal is important. We should not let them score first.  Good luck  to the team,” the onetime Iwuanyanwu Nationale centre-back added.

    Super eagles early goal(s) within 5 mins of kickoff will be the key to trashing these Zambians.

    In 1991, a boastful Burkina Faso team came to Lagos with their coach (like the current Zambian coach) threating then to disgrace Nigeria. They were decapitated by the Super Eagles under Clemence Westerhorf 7-1.
    The Zambian team was made to look good in Constantine by a tactically deficient and technically ragged Algerian team.
    The match tomorrow will not even be close. The Super Eagles will win and handsomely too.
    My scoreline:
    Nigeria 7
    Zambia 0
    Insha Allah

  • I saw Zambia being stubborn and the match stressed Rohr. That means the supporters club has to seek the face of God just as they did against Cammeroun. Nigerians should also join hands to remember the team in prayers. May the Almighty God be with us on this important day. AMEN.

    Our victory will be key to the midfielders . Hold the midfield well to ensure the opponent do not distribute the ball to the pacing Zambiaan strikers, obstruct the flow and assist defensively , play together as a team , defend and strike together . I bet you , super eagles will beat their opponents.
