Super Eagles’ opponents in the October 7 FIFA World Cup qualifier, Chipolopolo of Zambia, will spend a week in Ghana to acclimatize ahead of the decider game slated for Godswill Akpabio International Stadium Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.
FAZ president, Andrew Kamanga, revealed that the CHAN and COSAFA team will head to Spain for camping after which the foreign-based players are expected to link up with the team in Ghana for their final tune-up before traveling down to Nigeria.
“So we will send them to Europe for two weeks. The players who have been playing COSAFA and CHAN will go first and then their colleagues will join them, then we will move into Ghana for a week then go into Nigeria and fight to win because we believe we have a chance to go to the World Cup,” Kamanga said.
The Super Eagles lead Group B with 10 points and would need an outright win to confirm their third straight World Cup qualification, while Zambia need a win in Uyo to tie with Nigeria on ten points to take the group down to the wire.
