IT’S OUR TIME: My players believe we can beat Nigeria – WadaBy Joseph Mwenda on 27 Sep 2017
Chipolopolo coach Wedson Nyirenda says next months away showdown against Nigeria will be more of a pyschological game than a tactical duel.
“This will be a highly pyschological game. We are working on the players mental strength,” Nyirenda journalists from the local selection’s training camp.
“I think my players and the bench believe this is our time. God can only show you the fish but it is up to you to fish it.”
Leaders Nigeria hosts 2nd placed Zambia in their penultimate 2018 FIFA World Cup Group B qualifier on October 7 in Uyo.
Three points separate the top two sides who are now the only sides still in contention from Group B for the Moscow finals.
Zambia have 7 points while Nigeria have 10 points.
Cameroon are 3rd on 3 points and Algeria last on one point.
After losing one and drawing another from the opening games against Nigeria and Cameroon, Zambia woke up from slumber to punish Algeria with two successive defeats at home and away.
It is the under-20 youngsters who jazzed up the senior team with goals from Enock Mwepu and Patson Daka adding up to the Brian Mwila brace from the two encounters.
Zambia has never qualified to the World Cup, and the technical bench sees this as opportunity to make a debut appearance at the Russia 2018 meet.
