2018 World Cup Qualifiers Mikel assures of victory over Zambia

The Super Eagles training camp in Uyo is sparkling with stars ahead of Saturday's crucial World Cup qualifier against Zambia as skipper John Mikel Obi, Kelechi Iheanacho, Wilfred Ndidi and 14 other players have already reported.

Akpeyi told Chippa's website: "We have come this far and now with only a point to qualify we must give 100 percent".

The big game will take place on Saturday, in Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo.

Zambia are the only side who can overhaul Nigeria at the top of Group B after Cameroon and Algeria's World Cup chances were ended last month.

"The Eagles want to win again for Carl", Rohr said.


Nigeria will face second-placed Zambia in Uyo with their World Cup fate in their own hands.

The rave of the moment in Zambian football, Patson Daka was next to depart the session halfway as the Red Bull Salzburg forward ‎suffered what looked like a knee injury shortly after the team started light jogging. Nigeria in the past have been known to sit back and relax on a one goal lead, this they should not attempt if they want to pop the celebration champagne bought by the NFF.

"It is important to acknowledge the value of the Nigeria encounter and that it's the most important game Zambia will play in the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers". We are ready to win.

"I want to charge the Super Eagles to see their qualification to Russian Federation and make Nigeria proud [against Zambia]", Amunike told NFF.
