Zambia List 13 Things To Do To Overcome Nigeria In Uyo

Zambia List 13 Things To Do To Overcome Nigeria In Uyo

It’s less than three weeks to the all-important 2018 World Cup qualifying game between Nigeria’s Super Eagles and the Chipolopolo of Zambia at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo on october 7, 2017.

The Zambians are not leaving any stone unturned in a bid to win the game and thus avenge the 2-1 home loss they suffered on Matchday 1 while also nicking the sole ticket to Russia.

A Zambian journalist, simply identified by the initials RW and writing in the Zambian Observer, has therefore made a checklist of the 13 things Zambia must do to defeat Nigeria in October.


See if you agree with him…

1. We should respect Nigeria more than we did in the first half, but not fear them, no surrender, no retreat, no defeat.

2. Use attack-minded 4-5-1 or 4-4-2, remember Nigeria can sit back if they wish, winning is our only option.

3. Don’t allow them to shoot, we should close in and frustrate. They can score from range, place goals that outstretch the keepers, hit volleys and score from set pieces, we know that.

4. Long searching balls will be less effective, the Nigerian centre backs are physical and solid.

5. Tactically designate a marker for Victor Moses.

6. Recall Fwayo Tembo, he can beat the Nigerian defenders, he gave Nigeria problems in our home fixture.

7. Exploit the flanks with options of Fashion Sakala, Augustine Mulenga or Fwayo Tembo.

8. Enoch Mwepu and Kondwani Mtonga should solidify their partnership, that’s our engine against Nigeria.

9. Through balls will work well for Patson Daka’s speed better than high balls.

10. When we manage to kill the game, Lungu Chisamba can come in to hold the ball and invite fouls.

11. Get a better jersey for the boys, they are toiling and sacrificing and deserve a better jersey than that 4th grade stripe.

12. Wedson Nyirenda should continue wearing the light blue jacket and running in the opposite direction when we score, it’s or new “luck white shirt”.

13. Last but most importantly, Pray.


Ex-Zambia Star Malitoli: Chipolopolo Can Beat Super Eagles Like We Beat Algeria

A win for Nigeria will automatically extinguish any hopes of a first World Cup appearance for the Zambians while a draw or outright win will drag the tussle to the last match of the round on November 6 when Nigeria go away to Algeria while Zambia host Cameroon.

Both Cameroon and Algeria are already eliminated from the race to reach the World Cup.

  • 1 I agree with this writer. Dont Respect Nigeria and regret it.

    2 This is good for Nigeria as attack mindedness will open the back to allow our attack minded Victor Moses, Odion Ighalo and Alex Iwobi to pump in the needed goals.

    3 Nigeria don’t shoot. We like dribbling in and score interesting goals. Maybe from frreekicks which means you can only block.

    4 We actually have a no nonsense defence. You are right there.

    5 Is it possible to stop Moses!? Remember he is a defender in Chelsea and an attacker for the Eagles. So how do you stop such a person? …

    6 Tembo is rusty and so will be useless. Good for Nigeria anyway if you invite him.

    7 The flanks you mean Elderson Echiejile wing. Don’t even go there as Aina Ola is around. If Elderson is ineffective, Ola can do an effective job there. She hu Abdulahi’s wing is a no go area.

    8 Who are these guys that you mentioned? Were they in the 1st leg in Lusaka or new invitees? Whatever, they will only try. .

    9 Through ball ke. Are we playing secondary school football here? You are funny indeed. Is it through the midfield or where. You have heard of Mikel Obi and Ndidi abi? ok.

    10 It is Nigeria that will kill the game after loading in the goals. Until Nigeria has scored 3-4 goals you will never rest defending. .

    11 What has jersey has to do with the match. This guy is really funny. Ok, it is good to look nice anyway.
    12 Blue jacket for the coach? I do believe in fetish things. Running the opposite side is what? Don’t worry! There will be no need to do any running to whatever side as you will not score a single goal. You will spend all the time defending so as to not concede cameroonised goal fest.

    13 Pray ke. Eagles are prayer warriors. If prayers win matches, Nigeria would have been winning the world cup, CAF, WAFU, Champion league, FIFA World club, confederation cup, All Olympic. My friend don’t even go rhere as you can never beat Nigeria in that area. They pray before and after first half, before and after the second half especially if they win.

    Well well well. I hope I have not inadvertently revealed some Eagles’ secret. Zambia should study this response to the 13 point. Na advice.

    Hahahah funny you @djengo. You’ve tactically deflated that swollen analysis.

  • 12 I mean to say I do not believe in fetish things.

  • Mr djeniko. That 13 wan crack my ribbs. Very funny.

  • Tgrace 4 years ago

    @djeniko Good analysis sir. But can we tell this people to keep shot cus I already see 4-0 in favour of the Super Eagles

  • djeniko that was a very creative one

    Beat Nigeria in Nigeria? Why do we like deceiving ourselves? Is it because they lost against South Africa? It was clear they underrated Bafana Bafana.More than five of their key players were absent in that match. Did anyone watch Nigeria against Cameroon over the two legs? They are currently unplayable at home with Moses, Mikel, Balogun, Simeon, Ighalo, Ndidi, Iheanacho, Musa and Iwobi. They are so dangerous when going forward and comfortable defending. That Balogun is the best centre half in Africa right now. And no player in the Chipolopolo can stop Victor Moses and Ighalo. I don’t want to raise my hope. We are meeting Nigeria at a wrong time. I don’t see us winning that match, period.

  • @Tgrace. Thanks for copying and paste for our consumption. The Zambians are shaking like hurricane blown leaf. They discuss the match very much. This match came at the wrong time indeed. They are not even sure of winning the Zambia vs Cameroon match in Lusaka how much more the vs Nigeria match in Uyo. How they wish their last match would have been the vs Nigeria Lusaka!!! Dem for happy no be small.

  • omo9ja 4 years ago

    Hahaha Zambians should ask from Algeria and Cameroon. South Africa will meet us again next year and the world will see the superiority between the two teams.God bless Nigeria!!!

    If the God that I serve is Living as prophet of God then you have not yet known what God can do through prayers.Our only hope and trust is in prayer and our Master Jesus.Zambia it is our time to shine in Africa and to the whole entire world.We are a blessed country because of the covenant we have with God by declaring Zambia a Christian nation.Follow me on my page Fb sambo sambo and see that the Lord had spoken about clashes in your country before they happened and he is still showing the world about Zambia been a beacon of Africa and a light to the world as David Livingstone prayed upon the nation of Zambia before he died in the late 1800s.Our time to shine to the whole world has come.2017 is the way of the Lord for us.People think Zambians are prayer less and faithless.Wait until you see the glory,power of God manifesting in Zambia with Jesus on our side we are blessed nation.Blessed is a nation whose God is the Lord Psalm 33:11-12

      @ Sambo Sambo
      Question 1 Do you know how prophecy works?
      The lose against South Africa was an eye opener for all, the victory angainst Cameroon is the revival in Nigeria sport. See what our players are doing in top flight leagues even in China. And now what can you see in view of Nigeria win in your own compound? Is the prophecy attached?
      Question 2 To whom will you liken the Nigeria Nation to in Africa?
      Question 3 After the Oct7 match will you come back here?
      Sambo Sambo, I dnt go against your prophecy I love to see the progress of Zambia and the manifestation of the glory of God over the Nation of Zambia. See Nigeria is unstoppable now ask me why it is now Nigeria time to rise high above all others.
      Question 4? Do you know where Nigeria is in prophecy.
      Question 5? Who can stop the staff of Moses from pathing the Zambia sea (defence). Moses leads S.Moses, Ighalo and others to path the Cameroon sea and will do it again against Zambia.
      Question 6? Who can break the combatic force of Ekong-Balogun. Do not 4get Vicent Enyeama is likely to be back in between the stick
      Reverse the rest questions
      Sambo Sambo take it or leave it Nigeria 4 V 0 Zambia.
      Do come to Uyo on Oct 7 and see for yourself

  • Tgrace 4 years ago

    Pls let us leave South Africa for now thier own is coming to meet them in thier own compound.
    Nigeria is a team that can never taste defeat in the hands of any Africa teams for now. Revival has come into Nigeria football, then we are known as super chickens but now dnt dear give a wrong expression of Nigeria Super Eagles
    Nigeria 4 v Zambia 0
    Take it or leave it

    Lets wait for the D-day

  • Godswill 4 years ago

    When they were saying they have players in Europe,I then googled their Europe based players and saw that their Europe based players plays for one Lieferin FC, one unknown club in Austria. Nigeria has players playing at the highest level in Europe. Victor Moses is unstoppable. Just ask Cameroon, they could not score 1 goal over the 2 legs, its only a diving that gave them a penalty/a goal. Nigeria team is just too rich to draw the match let alone lose. World cup is bigger than Zambia, let them focus their effort in Afcon qualification. Again, look who they are bringing to face super eagles, small small boys that went to children competition (u20 world cup) to face the Almighty super eagles. Algeria is a bonus to every teams in that group, so victory against them should not be over celebrated. Nigeria 5 Zambia 0

  • Yifang 4 years ago

    Hi, greeting from China. So happy that Mikel Obi and Ighalo perform perfect in Super Eagles. They are really stars in CSL.
    Besides, Victor Moses is really shining, nobody can stop him .
    Well Good luck Super Eagles. Wish a great victory in Russia World Cup.

  • It’s better Zambians wake up from their sleep to concentrate on AFCON 2019 qualifiers & 2022 world cup qualifiers, imperatively Algeria coach told them to forget Russia 2018.How I wish chipolopolo had the likes of V.Moses,Ighalo,Balogun,Mikel in their team,sorry Zambians

  • Echono Daniel 4 years ago

    Nigeria can beat any Country in the world. We’re too giant for Country like Zambia to mess with. We have all it takes to squize Zambia like paper.

  • Echono Daniel 4 years ago

    Our current players are wonderful. We’ll crush Zambian in Uyo and fly on eagle’s wings to Algeria to sink the Algerians. God bless Balogun, Mikel, Moses, Ighalo, musa, Ndidi, Iwobi, Ihanacho, isaac and Ekong for their commitments to SUPPER EAGLE. I luv u all.

    Eagles Captain Mikel Begins Extra Drills Ahead World Cup 2018 Qualifiers Tie Against Zambia
    See a determined man who see victory before going to the game. Waoh! Even before the match we are rest assured of victory

  • A very sincere advice to the Zambians: come with a bag big enough to collect all the goals, because it doesn’t make sense bringing school boys to rub shoulders with S. Moses, V. Moses, Balogun etc.

  • Charles shilaka 4 years ago

    I like Zambia national teeam’s courage for believing they are coming to beat the eagles @ home. I assume, they feeled our boys are not preparing for them, abi.
    Nigeria will qualify for Russia 2018 on 7th October, 2017.

  • I want the scoreline to be Nigeria 6-0 Zambia… I’m not wicked but I want a scoreline that’ll silence that country that’s not bigger or richer than Lagos.
