Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr, has boasted of his side’s ability to defeat Zambia when the two teams square up this weekend at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium, in a crucial World Cup qualifying game.
The German tactician, who admits the game would be a tough encounter, however stated that his team will not underrate Zambia as Nigeria seeks qualification for next year’s World Cup holding in Russia.
The Super Eagles currently sit at the summit of Group B with 10 points from four games followed by Zambia with seven points.
“I can’t predict the score line against Zambia because it would not be an easy match,” Rohr told CAFonline .
He continued: “Zambia can be dangerous because they also have a good team; I don’t think it would be a 4 – 0 win for us but the most important thing for us is to win even if it’s by one or two goal difference.
“I have seen a lot of videos of the Zambian team and I must confess they are a very good side much better than the team we played last October but we are not afraid.
“We only have to give them respect but we won’t make the mistake Algeria made by underrating Zambia; they have quick strikers but we shall be ready for them.”
