Nyirenda: Chipolopolo Have The Character To Beat Eagles In Uyo

Zambia coach, Wedson Nyirenda, is confident that the Chipolopolo have the character to beat the Super Eagles of Nigeria when they clash in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying match at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium Uyo next month, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Nyirenda says victory will be paramount for his team away to Nigeria on October 7 in what can define their 2018 qualifier destiny after their away win against Algeria in Constantine on Tuesday.

“It will not be easy playing against a big team like Nigeria at their home where everyone will be there for them,” pNyirenda told Lusaka Times.

“But I think we have the character to get a win.”

Zambia brightened their chances of qualifying for the 2018 World FIFA in Russia with a 1-0 win over Algeria away in Constantine on Tuesday night to move up to the second spot in Group B, with seven points from four matches, three points behind Nigeria who lead the group with 10 points from the same number of games.

      Actually, I concur with what you have said. Given the current form of Super Eagle, it will be very difficult for any team to beat Eagle now. But we should also pray for luck as well.One thing is to play well, another thing is for your opponent to be scoring as what happened in Algiers. Best of luck.

    That character wasn’t there when we beat you in your home, abi? You will come and receive proper beating this time around. Nothing can stop us from that ticket next month.

    Better do the talking on the field of play….real men don’t talk too much!

  • Gone are days of recruiting rookies to play qualifiers only for the ‘big boys’ to emerge from slumber to be enlisted for the competition proper. That is the new orientation of the SE that would send these Chipolopolo guys whizzing back to the copper mines in Zambia. If they knew how hungry these boys are to berth in Russia, and what awaits them in Uyo, they would have controlled their basket mouths by now.
