2018 WCQ: Rohr Warns Eagles Over 'Better' Zambians
Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has sounded out a note of warning to his wards.
“Zambia have changed from one year ago,” Rohr said.
“They have young players from the U-20s who did well at the Africa U-20 Cup of Nations and the U-20 World Cup, so they have a very good team.
The Super Eagles beat Zambia 2-1 away from home in Match Day 1 of the qualifying series but Rohr on Thursday in Uyo said the Chipolopolo have improved tremendously.
“But we’re ready and the players have a big motivation to win. We have two more training sessions before the game. We’re confident and the Zambians are also confident.
“It’s a game between two teams that play good football but with different styles. We have a good mix of youth and experience and they have young and quick players.”
Rohr said the Eagles have the edge but they will be wrong to take their foot off the pedal in Saturday's game in Uyo.
He said: “We’re in a good situation but we’re not through yet. Zambia must win though if they are to have any chance. We want to win, even when we know that a draw will still leave us clearly ahead.”
The match will kick off at 5pm at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium here in Uyo.
