Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, has admitted that the Chipolopolo of Zambia would not be a piece of cake against Nigeria on October 7.
Rohr said the Southern African would want to do everything possible to frustrate the three times African Cup of Nation winner’s despite playing away.
The Franco-German trainer said, “I can’t predict the score line against Zambia because it would not be an easy match,”
“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,” added Rohr.
Rohr said the Chipolopolo would not be underrated despite Nigeria’s impressive record against Zambia at international level after winning seven out of the past 17 matches plus the 2-1 away win in Ndola last October as well as five drawn and five losses in other encounters.
“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,” Rohr reassured.
He said, ” 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.”
