Comment : Difficult takes a day, impossible Takes a Week.

Away game against the current Nigeria team in Uyo is definitely a tall order for any team. Zambia heads out to play what will be the group’s decider for the 2018 World Cup Qualifier.

The record between the two show Nigeria having supremacy over Zambia in the past with the two having played 17 times, Nigeria have won 7 times and Zambia only 5 which all came in non competitive games.

Of course Nigeria are strong favorites going into this fixture having assembled a stellar squad that includes English Premier league stars and other quality players who play their club football across Europe.

The Nigerians have a near perfect balance or graft, craft, pace and instinct and it will be vital for Zambia to enter this game knowing they need to wither down a storm at the start with a hugely motivated Nigeria promised huge sums of cash each per goal they score against Zambia.

Zambia come in full of confidence having just broken the Arabian jinx by beating Algeria 1 – 0 in Algeria courtesy of a solitary Patson Daka strike to give Zambia a real shout at Russia 2018.

After overcoming a slight fitness concern over young forward Patson Daka and skipper and shot stopper Kennedy Mweene, Fashion Sakala could still earn himself a central striking role should Dthe coach opt for more mobility up front.


Nigerian Journalist: But coach you have injuries. What’s the latest on Daka?”

Wedson Nyirenda: Knocks and injuries are normal in football. Unless you want to be an accountant. Yes, Brian Mwila is out injured. But Daka is here.


Football is always 11 v 11 and the Nigerians will be hoping to intimidate the Zambians. But as the quote says “Difficult takes a day, impossible Takes a Week” so as difficult as the task ahead, Zambia will have their work cut out knowing that impossible is nothing with the right level of work put in.

    A Zambian promises to renounce his citizenship if Chipolopolo loses to Nigeria..His chat is well documented and would be published after the game. Farewell to a lost Zambian in advance. Only hope he gets asylum in soon so as not to remain a nomadic.

      Simple. Because copper bullets no longer kills even a lizard, not to talk of a mighty super eagle. The Eagle will swallow the bullets.


        No this eagle is busy plucking off its feathers, its talons also are off…..so the right time to shoot it down.

    It will be very difficult for Nigeria to lose here at Akwa Ibom.

    We have big names playing round Europe but that doesn’t add up in present day’s African football ad there seems to be no longer any team classified as “Under Dogs”.And that’s good for African football

    Anyways, We really don’t joke with World Cup qualifying games especially at our Home soil in Akwa Ibom.Chaii

    Worse comes to Worse, the match will end up as a Draw game.
