Zambian football legend Kalusha Bwalya reckons the current generation of Chipolopolo has the capacity to upset the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
The former Football Association of Zambia president says he respects the West Africans, but Wedson Nyirenda's men can come back with a win.

Bwalya says he feel that Zambia has done exceptionally well especially in the last two games against Algeria and this game will be a high pressure.
“This Saturday game will be a high pressure match and i feel playing at home Nigeria will be more under pressure which can work to Zambia’s advantage," said Bwalya to Lusaka Times.
“I have always had great respect for the Super Eagles and it’s array of world class players but, if there is a team that can beat Nigeria in Nigeria it’s Chipolopolo.
“This is a last throw of the dice. It is a must win match. The team has done exceptionally well.
"The result against Algeria was a big psychological win and Zambia always rises to the occasion,when needed most.
“Notwithstanding, it is important to acknowledge the value of the Nigeria encounter and that it is the most important game Zambia will play in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.”
