2018 WCQ: Eagles Are NOT Super - Zambia Vice Captain
The Nigeria national football team should consider a name change Ziyo Tembo, the vice captain of Zambia's Chipolopolo has suggested via his latest remarks.
According to Tembo, there is nothing super about the Super Eagles and they will be made to look as ordinary as possible during Saturday's World Cup qualifying game in Uyo.
Tembo said Zambia is ready for battle and every player was focused on the task of beating the Super Eagles in order to keep their World Cup qualification ambition alive.
He said: “There is nothing sinister about the Nigeria game, it’s a game like any other we have played before. Yes they have a good side and have quality players and we can’t take that away from them but they are beatable,” Tembo said.
The Zanaco of Zambia defender insists the Chipolopolo are in no way bothered by the head-to-head record they have against Nigeria.
“Nigeria’s dominance over us is history for we are looking at the future and what will matter most in the game is our application on the pitch. We are not inferior to Nigeria, the only difference is that most of our players play in Africa and they have more players in Europe,” he said.
Tembo added that the team would make Zambians proud by beating Nigeria.
