2018 World Cup Qualifier: Super Eagles Must Fall In Ndola, Boasts Zambia’s Sports Minister

Zambia's Honourable Sports Minister, Moses Mawere has charged the senior national team to beat the Super Eagles at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Sunday's 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

The Chipolopolo would be hoping to create an upset against a Super Eagles side, in a bid to begin their campaign on a bright note. Both teams last met at the 2013 AFCON tournament in South Africa where the encounter ended in a 1-1 draw.

However, Mawere, who's still sad over the team's failure to qualify for the Nations Cup, revealed to the Post that anything short of victory against Nigeria would be satisfactory.

“The country’s expectation is high, the only hope is the World Cup after failing to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations. I challenge the players and coaches to step up and perform better. We need to beat Nigeria, we can do it,” Mawere said.
