You have big names and we have a team, roars Wada

Zambia National team head coach, Wedson Nyirenda is not moved by the big names in the Super Eagles fold ahead of their Saturday’s showdown , in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers penultimate round.

Speaking to the press in Uyo on Friday afternoon, Nyirenda played down talks of Chipolopolo being under pressure ahead of the tie–while talking highly of his lads and what they can do against a Nigerian side with household names.

“Which pressure? Do I look like I have premssure?

Asked on how his young guns compare with the much more established West African, the former Power Dynamos legend was bullish in his response.

“You have all the big names, we do not have the big names. All we have is the eleven players.

On arrival in Uyo State on Thursday, Chipolopolo Boys captain Kennedy Mweene was asked the same question.

“Football is played on the pitch eleven against eleven,” Mweene responded.

The shot stopper didn’t end there.

“We have exciting youngsters in the team,” the Sundowns goalkeeper reminded the Nigerians about the threat of Fashion Sakala, Augustine Mulenga, Enock Mwepu and Patson Daka.

Nigeria lead the Group on 10 points, three ahead of the Southern Africa powerhouse .

    Football skills and talent is not by appointment or Big names.
    Ask the Algerians it was not their wish to lose twice in less than 90hours.Nigeria is very strong and reach in football manpower but some skills and talents are dotted in parts of Africa-e.g Zambia,carpe vede,congo ect .
