Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr is guiding his loins ahead of Saturday’s 2018 World Cup qualifier against Zambia.

Rohr says he wants to avoid mistake made by group rivals Algeria, who succumbed to Zambia's fire power in September.

Zambia beat Algeria home and away to claim all six points.

Rohr believes the North Africans made some mistakes in the two matches. 

“I have seen a lot of videos of the Zambian team and I must confess they are a very good side, much better than the team we played last October but we are not afraid.

“We only have to give them respect but we won't make the mistake Algeria made by underrating Zambia; they have quick strikers but we shall be ready for them.” Rohr said on Caf website.

“Zambia can be dangerous because they also have a good team; I don't think it would be a 4-0 win for us but the most important thing for us is to win even if it's by one or two goal difference.”

Nigeria tops Group B on 10 points, three more than Zambia, and a win for the West Africans on Saturday will see them through to Russia 2018.
