Zambian national team coach, Wedson Nyirenda has warned that the game against the Super Eagles of Nigeria will need a strong psychological approach.

Chipolopolo will visit Nigeria for 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier next Saturday, October 7 as they look to book a spot at the tournament in Russia.

Nyirenda says he is preparing his troops mentally and anticipates a tough encounter in West Africa next weekend.


"This game will be highly psychological, therefore we are working on their mental strength before the match,” Nyirenda tells FAZ website.

“Every player and everyone on our bench know and believe that this time is our time. God can only show you the fish and it up to you to fish it out.

"Looking at the way we worked against Algeria home and away it tells a lot of stories. The boys now know and believe it can be done.

“Nigeria is a different team we are not going to be big headed because we beat Algeria we are focused on looking at Nigeria only." CLICK HERE TO VISIT AFRICAN FOOTBALL ZAMBIA
