ZAMBIA captain and
goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene
has said that Nigeria will
not beat Cameroon again in
Yaounde just as his team aim
to do the double over Algeria
in forthcoming decisive 2018
World Cup qualifiers.
The road to Russia 2018
gathered momentum at
the weekend with Nigeria
cementing their leadership of
their qualifying group with
a 4-0 thrashing of Cameroon,
while Zambia shot to second
place after they outscored
Algeria 3-1 in Lusaka.
Nigeria remain top of the
group on nine points, but
Zambia are now five points
adrift with four points.
Mweene, who has taken
over the captaincy of The
Chipolopolo in the absence
of Rainford Kalaba, has now
said his team will gun for a
second victory over bottom
team Algeria on Tuesday and
he does not expect Nigeria to
win in Cameroon on Monday
so as to leave qualification race
wide open.
The South Africa-based shot
stopper declared: “We are still
not under pressure because of
Nigeria’s lead.
“We are solely focused on
getting at least six points
against Algeria.
“If Nigeria won in Cameroon
and we won in Algeria, then it
will be between us and then…..
“But mark my words, Nigeria
won’t win in Cameroon, it
won’t happen.”
Nigeria take on Cameron
tomorrow in Yaounde by
6pm Nigerian time, while
Zambia are away to Algeria in
Constantine on Tuesday night.
