Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr maintains that undermining Zambia will be a huge mistake on his part, saying he can't predict the scoreline.

The Super Eagles are set to host the Chipolopolo this weekend in a crucial 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

Nigeria are confident after a win and a draw against Cameroon last month whilst coach Wedson Nyirenda led his troops to two wins over the Desert Warriors of Algeria in Group B.

Rohr has admitted that their Southern African visitors will not be a piece of cake for the West Africans.

“I can't predict the score line against Zambia because it would not be an easy match,” said to Rohr to 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.”
