Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr has stated that the Chipolopolo of Zambia will not be underestimated ahead of their World Cup qualifying match in Uyo.
Nigeria are the group leaders of Group B, topping with 10 points from four games, having not lost any.
And Rohr says second on the table, Zambia will be given the respect they deserve, as a win will secure Nigeria’s spot in the 2018 World Cup.
“I can’t predict the score line against Zambia because it would not be an easy match,” Rohr told CAFonline.
“Zambia can be dangerous because they also have a good team; I don’t think it would be a 4-0 win for us but the most important thing for us is to win even if it’s by one or two goal difference.
“I have seen a lot of videos of the Zambian team and I must confess they are a very good side much better than the team we played last October but we are not afraid.
“We only have to give them respect but we won’t make the mistake Algeria made by underrating Zambia; they have quick strikers but we shall be ready for them,” he concluded.
