Nigeria V Zambia Clash - It's Fire for Fire - Mikel

This Saturday, October 7, 2017 (9:00 AM Pacific) Nigeria will host Zambia at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium for a match in the CAF 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The striker scored a hat-trick for Villarreal last weekend - his first in LaLiga - and is overdue some World Cup qualifying goals.

Zambia have mounted pressures on Nigeria until Iwobi came in as a substitute in the second half to change the pace of the game. Please use sharing tools.

In the group's other game, Cameroon beat Algeria 2-0 to maintain their third position on six point.

"It was a very hard game and we didn't underrate this team because we saw on video what they did to Algeria two times and against Cameroon", he told media.

President Buhari also appealed to public and private organisations, as well as well-meaning Nigerians to continue to assist the Super Eagles as the team head for a sixth appearance at the summit of football competition. We have done the first part which is to qualify; now the aim is to create history in Russian Federation next year.

Zambia are on seven points and their hope of reaching the World Cup finals has now been dashed.

The 1988 African footballer of the year described the encounter as the most important game in the qualifiers for Wedson Nyirenda's boys.

South Africa recorded their first win in Group D with a 3-1 success against Burkina Faso despite losing Bongani Zungu to a red card in the second half for retaliation. All four teams can still qualify, but Senegal, boosted by FIFA's decision, is suddenly the favorite. The fate of the voucher for the World Cup is in the hands of Nigeria, which should try its best to win at home.
