Iheanacho, who had the honour of captaining the team against Lesotho expressed disappointment with the outcome of the game against Leslie Notsi’s side.

The Leicester City midfielder who bagged an assist against Lesotho stated that they must go all out for a win against Zimbabwe.

“Huge honour to captain the boys yesterday I know this was a game we have to win but we didn’t. We got a point from it Hopefully we would do a lot more in the next game and get 3 points,” he posted.

The encounter against Zimbabwe will kick-off at 2pm Nigeria time.

    Those who sacked Gernot Rohr – Pinnick, Dare, Eguavoen, Odegbami now know they made a grave error. Peseiro is nowhere near the class of the quiet German. Nigeria is a country of the blind!

    If GENERAL ROAR were to still be our COACH and is blessed with all these players currently in the team, by now after these two games, we would have been done with qualifying..the rest games would just be for formalities
