Rohr Hints At New Formation For Zambia Tie – Our Tactics Will Surprise Zambia


The Super Eagles of Nigeria will not play same formation and style that helped them pick a win and a draw against Cameroon in their last World Cup 2018 Qualifiers against Zambia, according to coach Gernot Rohr.

Rohr made this known during the pre-match conference of the team ahead of Saturday’s clash against Zambia in ‎Uyo. A game which a win will see them progress to the World Cup in Russia.

Victory will see Nigeria gain an unassailable 13 points, which will be good enough for them to progress to the World Cup as group winners with a game to spare‎.

The 4-0 win and 1-1 draw against Cameroon helped the Eagles to confirm their leadership of the group, but Rohr says they will change the formation that helped them in the games against Cameroon for obvious reasons.

” We know our style that helped us against Cameroon, and we would love to play the same style again, but we know it will be more difficult to do it against Zambia “, Rohr said.

” They ( Zambia) already know us and our style from the game against Cameroon. So we have to have a good preparation and also change tactics, also to be more dangerous and to be able to surprise them “, he concluded.

  5. Lukanga Kafusha Justice says:

    Why a new formation? Simple this coach is scared to his bones. He knows very well it wont be pla sailing for Nigeria hence mind games. We are coming uko and with the proper travelling arrangements

  6. Zaka says:

    Nigeria scared of Zambia?? What you see in that statement is HUMILITY. That’s where Wada and some loud-mouthed fans should learn. I still keep my fingers crossed. Nigeria is not a yesterday team. We should be careful.

  7. Lukanga Kafusha Justice says:

    Elyo ta ya kabe 1-0, 2-0 it will 5, 6 zero

  8. Lukanga Kafusha Justice says:

U think ur team is stronger than Cameroon right?? Our boys might end up walloopin ur boys 12 : 0 ur chickenopolopolo coach just got himself a big task… Hahahhah

    • Bsimms says:

      We have not fallen for anything my friend.

      This is the first time I have heard him discuss tactical changes before a game. It’s just mind games & the moment he makes those changes that’s the downfall of a super chicken..

      Mind games! That’s what it’s called. Bloody mind games, from a nervous man.

      Our coach has prepared well, tomorrow wina azalila…I know it’s not me/ any Zambian. If they flow then its because of joy.

  10. Zambian Buffalo says:

    Nigeria must fall. Less than 23 hours remaining to witness history.

    • Lukanga Kafusha Justice says:

      We gonna make it brother for we have a team and it is no joke. Since when did Zambia win in North Africa. Tell me? We did it in Algeria

  11. oakfield says:

    You zambians (including your coach) have big mouths. You need to be professional in ur approach to games and nt winning matches with ur mouths before games. Have at d back of ur mind that Nigeria is not algeria. That u beat algeria does not mean you’ll do same to Nigeria. It’ll b a diff ball game tomorrow. Remember, pride goes before a fall.

  12. Lukanga Kafusha Justice says:

    If we can beat Algeria away then it is possible to beat Nigeria in their back ward chapwa. No doubt

  13. Talk is cheap, enough of talking let the best team show us on the playing field. Football is never played and won by the mouth and on paper but 11 men against 11 on the pitch putting the ball behind the net.

  14. Bsimms says:

    Just listening to Odion Ighalo warning Zambia, that though this will not be easy Nigeria will definately beat Zambia & they will end up in Russia since he has never been to the senior world cup.

    Let them suprise us if they dare! We are ready for you Ighalo & team. Fashion, Mwepu & Patson have only been to the U20 world cup.They also want to go to Russia. Remember this as you step on that pitch.

  15. Bsimms says:

    Under 17 world Cup. Ghana wins their 1st game. Good news for Africa. Wish our boys were there too.

  16. Sibs says:

    I have a lot of respect for Nigeria. They have better players on paper and they are our Big brothers. But one thing i know the ball is round it can go anywhere it is moved to.

    I smell a huge shock and upset in the making. Go ZAMBIA. In God we TRUST.

  17. Ernest 9ja says:

    U think nigeria is scared of zambia. What happened when we beat u last year where they afraid? Watch and see what 9ja will do to zambia tomorrow. Do u think u are better than cameroun?

  18. Ernest 9ja says:

    Talk is cheap. Zambia beating algeria home and away is not a yardstick to beat 9ja at home ask cameroun what happened to them. The zambia fans and coach should be wasting time boasting. Football is played on the pitch and not by mouth. Tomorrow u shall see a different 9ja team. We are waiting for u.

  19. Amandla says:

    If we can shoot the Supper Eagles’ wings then they will not soar high!

  20. Anonymous says:

    it will be an interesting game. a buffet for the neutrals but goose bumps for the interested parties. hopefully, it wont be marred with poor officiating. the best team should carry the day.

  21. Abdulrazak says:

    In 1991, Nigeria beat a boastful Burkina Faso team 7-1. Their coach then just like the present Zambian coach had boasted about what he would do to the Super Eagles.
    Zambia will be decapitated tomorrow. A tactically defiencient Algeria made an ordinary Zambian team look good.
    Also, before you start off about some of the Zambian players playing at the quarter finals of the last U20 World Cup. Nigeria has appeared at the finals twice.
    My scoreline for tomorrow
    Nigeria 7
    Zambia 0

  22. Ik says:

    Zambia beat Algeria home and away isn’t even a reason to think they’ll beat Nigeria. Zambia is a good team no doubt but Nigeria isn’t going to miss the fleet of chances Algeria did. You keep calling names of your stars but forgetting that the Super Eagles isn’t just about names but about players who play and perform against quality oppositions in Europe top leagues week in, week out. I’m keeping my fingers crossed to see the miracle the Zambians would perform tomorrow.

  23. Don says:

    Nigeria 1 – Zambia 2

  24. matt chilu says:

    The day of reckoning is upon us. Should my chipolopolo win I’ll come back to this page and just soack it all in. Lol

  25. GSK11 says:

    Young Bullets… lets hits them where it hurts most… i.e. at home!!!

  26. Bsimms says:



    Our defence is worrying; but soccer being what it is we shall do it.

    Names are nothing to go by.We are under dogs but we can bite where it matters the most because we are under pressure. We need goals & a win.

  27. Dammy says:

    The gulf in quality between both sides is very wide. NO Zambian player will make the Super Eagles squad. You rely on players in backwater European leagues or the likes of Fashion playing in the reserve teams. Four of the top goalscorers in the Belgian league, Onyekuru (Anderlecht), Dennis (FC Brugges), Olayinka (Zulte-Waregem) and Awoniyi (mouscron) cannot even make the SE squad. I bet if they were Zambians, they would be mainstays in your team. Others like Success (Watford), Joel Obi (Torino), Nura (Roma), Sadiq (Torino), Alhassan (Austria Wien), Osimhen (Wolfsburg), Kayode (Girona) etc are all on the outside trying to break into the squad. I hope this gives you an idea of what you are against.

  28. taiwo says:

    do these Zambians think they are playing against Togo or Sudan?

  29. Benny says:

    Mmmm! bragging of playing overseers aren’t proud of your own football mmmmm shame on u
