Lagos – Kelechi Iheanacho, the Manchester City and Super Eagles forward, has said that the national team of Nigeria has the players to put their hosts, the Chipolopolo of Zambia, to the sword when the two sides meet on Sunday in Ndola.

The Super Eagles will be the guests of Chipolopolo on Sunday in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in Zambia and Iheanancho, while admitting that the match won’t be an easy one, said that they are presently focusing on Zambia before talking of Algeria and Cameroon.

“It (Zambia match) is an away game for us and is going to be a difficult one. We have great players that will make the difference against Zambia.

“We have to overcome Zambia first before we can talk about Cameroon and Algeria. However, it’s not going to be easy and nobody knows what’s going to happen. We will keep fighting as a team to get to the World Cup,” Iheanacho said.

The player, who was voted the most valuable player in the FIFA U-17 World Cup barely three years ago, promised his best on Sunday.

“I will also work hard for my country as an individual; and we are going to put in all hard work collectively as a team.”
