Nigeria coach: Zambia is a young and dangerous side
Coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has described the Zambian team to face Nigeria on Saturday in the 2018 World Cup qualifier as, “young and dangerous.”
The Franco-German is, however, banking on his side’s mix of experience and youthfulness to defeat his opponent.
The Eagles defeated Cameroon on September 4 in Uyo, and also got an away point in Yaoundé, but Rohr expects the Chipolopolo to be a better side than the Indomitable Lions.
He told reporters in Uyo, “The Zambia game will be difficult. They have a better team than Cameroon perhaps. So we must be ready to give a good fight.
“They (Zambia) are very young and dangerous.
“They don’t have anything to lose, they will come here with the mind to win this game. We’ve seen in the game against South Africa but I have a team with experience and youth to conquer and I think we are ready for this big game
