Players of the Super Eagles of Nigeria have been warned to expect a fight tougher than what they had in their back to back games against Cameroon when they take on Zambia on Saturday.
Coach Gernot Rohr who lead the Eagles to a win and a draw against Cameroon is one win away from qualifying the Super Eagles for the World Cup in Russia next year.
However he has cautioned his lads to be at their best as the Zambians are a much improved side from the team the Eagles beat 2-0 in Ndola in the reverse tie.
” We are looking at making the decision in our group. Of course, if we win this game on Saturday, you know that we have qualified, everybody wants to do it. But we know also that Zambia is a good team”, Rohr said.
” They are champions of Under-20 in Africa, they have a different team now from the one they had in Ndola. So we must not underrate this team.
” We gave a lot of respect for this Zambian team. They beat Algeria twice, we know it would not be easy. I think it would be even more difficult than the Cameroon game,” he concluded.
