Kalu confident of a Zambia victory in Uyo

African football legend Kalusha Bwalya is confident Chipolopolo can upset Super Eagles away in Uyo. The former FAZ president believes Coach Wedson Nyirenda’s team has enough quality to beat Nigeria.

The 1988 African footballer of the year says the team has enough ammunition upfront and that the young strikers are in good form coming into this match.

“I feel that Zambia has done exceptionally well especially in the last two games against Algeria.
Last year’s match at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium between the 2 sides and the result is now history and will not have an effect in this Saturdays game,” part of a post on his official Facebook page read.

Bwalya says pressure will be on the Super Eagles to deliver as they will be playing at home.

“This Saturday game will be a high-pressure match and i feel playing at home, Nigeria will be more under pressure. This can work to Zambia’s advantage. I have always had great respect for the Super Eagles and it’s array of world-class players but if there is a team that can beat Nigeria in Nigeria it’s Chipolopolo.

This is a last throw of the dice. It is a must-win match. The team has done exceptionally well. The result against Algeria was a big psychological win and Zambia always rises to the occasion,when needed most”.

The former PSV striker believes this is Zambia’s most important match of the qualifiers.

“Notwithstanding , it is important to acknowledge the value of the Nigeria encounter and that it is the most important game Zambia will play in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
The current squad has players who are able to score at any given opportunity and the boys are in good form coming into this match.

A team needs to score a goal in any game and this team has potential goal-scorers. The young guns have brought a new dimension to the team. Never has the experience of goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene, Stoppila Sunzu’s marshaling of the defensive line, Enock Mwepu emergence as a midfield brain with the finishing of Patson Daka upfront been required than in this crucial match. I expect a solid entertaining match with end to end action. If you look at all the African Groups in this WC FIFA 2018 qualifying series, coming into the last 2 games , each team is fighting for those important valuable points”.

    1996 footballer of the year????!!!!mmmmmmm…….

    Good to see that you are finally singing praise for your fellow country men Mr. wont vote for Kalaba traitor.

    I love what you have doe for Zambia but that no vote for Kalaba is still unforgivable in my books.

    • Marto B. says:

      Ba steve lets be objective, how can He be the best when even now as a country we realise we dont need Him. i thought if He was that good we would be moving heaven and earth to have Him in the team and that tells us all about Him.

      • Ace says:

        What made it worse was that our Great Kalu said one thing publicly, that Kalaba stood a great chance of winning but when it came to the voting, it turned out that he voted for someone else, as he wasn’t aware that the votes would be made public.

        So he could be saying that he is confident of a Zambia victory only to find that he placed a bet on Nigeria winning.

  2. FIZ Manuel says:

    It’s a good thing to be patriotic but I wonder how Zambians are over confident about a Nigeria team that is yet to loose a match in this qualifying campaign. Result wise in the group B, they the best. If zambia should get a draw in Uyo, it will great result. Wishing the Chipps all the best.

    Breaking NeWS,
    Parson injured and may not be available for the game. Those of you who talks to Wada, please ask him, to call kalaba in the name of God. Already Edward Chilufya is already ruled out due to visa issues. Even wada himself how many times has he offended other’s yet he has been forgiven. How can you have a heart like that, failing to forgive sure?

  4. Mark c says:

    Call kalaba coach please this is the must win game.

  5. SMMSOJC says:

    Patson and Chilufya … we can only speak progress and availability this Saturday against all olds.

    Great inspiration from our Great Kalu … the man did his good part and we must put aside all the negative vibes. viva Chiolopolo …

  7. Tgrace says:

    Tell your coach to call kalaba now. I guess your coach is not ready to change his mind and humble himself to call the right player. It not good this injuries is coming this time cause we want to see the best of Zambia in Uyo.
    Prediction: Nigeria 4 v 0 Zambia

  8. Mark c says:

    Nigeria is beatable if bafana bafana butchered you.zambia can white wash you. Kalaba must be included in this one

  9. Abdulrazak says:

    South Africa played against Super Eagles B team. Zambians don’t know what the word pressure is yet!
    Just wait till the match kicks off on October 7th.
