We will grab 3 points from the match against Zam­bia - Yusuf

Sunday Trust - - FEVER PITCH -

Sal­isu Yusuf, Su­per Ea­gles As­sis­tant Coach, yes­ter­day said the match against Zam­bia would be given all at­ten­tion and se­ri­ous­ness in or­der to seal the de­sired qualification ticket.

Yusuf said this in an in­ter­view with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja while speak­ing on the team’s prepa­ra­tions for Zam­bia.

He said that win­ning Zam­bia in the Group B World Cup cam­paign was im­per­a­tive to se­cure a very com­fort­able lead.

The coach, who de­scribed Zam­bia as good side, urged the Ea­gles to ex­plore all av­enues avail­able to cage them.

“Zam­bians of re­cent have dis­played qual­ity football by beat­ing Al­ge­ria in home and away matches.

“That shows that they are not to be un­der­rated at all by any op­po­nent espe­cially Nigeria,” Yusuf said.

He said that the tech­ni­cal man­age­ment of the team would work in syn­ergy to de­feat the Zam­bian side.

Ac­cord­ing to him, “we are im­prov­ing on our strength and also work­ing on our weak­nesses for vic­tory.”

The su­per Ea­gles will on Oc­to­ber 7 in Uyo, meet the Zam­bian na­tional team in their World Cup qual­i­fiers.

Nigeria at present leads the Group B with 10 points and fol­lowed by Zam­bia with seven points.
