Three highly respected Zambian journalist have taken swipe at the Super Eagles of Nigeria ahead of Sunday’s World Cup 2018 qualifiers clash against the Chipolopolo in Ndola.

James Lungu told Owngoalnigeria.com that Nigeria is no longer a force to be reckoned with in global football due to the dearth of quality footballers in the country, unlike before.

” I heard Victor Moses is not playing, that is good news. Who do you have? Mikel? , he sits on the bench at Chelsea, the rest are average players, except Kelechi Iheanacho and Alex Iwobi. You don’t win games with kids” He said.

James Kennedy also shared same opinion as his compatriot, insisting that Zambia have got more experience in their team than Nigeria.

” We have players with more experience than you guys. Nigerians are quick to shout Iwobi. We see them on social media. Iheanacho, they are kids, am not sure they can cope with the demands of a World Cup qualifiers. You need experience in the African terrain to do that”. He concluded.
