Coach of the senior national team of Zambia Wedson Nyirenda has admitted that his team need more than good tactics, if they want to beat Nigeria in their World Cup 2018 Qualifiers in Uyo.
Zambia need a win to keep the group open ahead of the final round of games, while Nigeria need a win to progress to the tournament with a game to spare after picking up 10 points from a possible 12.
Nyirenda believes his players need mental drilling to be at par with the Super Eagles, and that is one area he is focusing on ahead of the clash which will take place on the 7th of October.
He also went religious while insisting that his wards know it is their time to qualify for the World Cup as God has taken them far for them to help themselves.
“The game will be highly psychological, therefore we are working on their mental strength before the match,” the coach said on his official twitter handle.
“Every player and everyone on our bench know and believe that this time is our time. God can only show you the fish and it is up to you to fish it out.”
