Kalusha: Zambia will shock Nigeria, Cameroon, Algeria

Former Zambia captain and ex-President of the Football Association of Zambia, Kalusha Bwalya has stated that the Chipolopolo will defeat both Nigeria and Zambia during the Russia 2018 World Cup qualifiers billed for October.

With only the group winner making it to Russia, Kalusha said there was no need to shudder as Zambia has the ability to beat any of the teams in the group.

“Chipolopolo have had the better of Cameroon and Nigeria in the past.

“Algeria have always given us some sleepless nights. I have confidence in the group of the players and let’s see what happens. Anything can happen in this group.

“Teams will get points off each other but our players should believe in themselves. It’s tough but it can be done. The bigger the names of the opponents, the better Zambia plays,” Kalusha said.

He called for early preparations in the race to make it to Russia as well as putting everything in place ahead of the first two games (at home to Nigeria and then away to Cameroon).

He said Zambia just has to get good results and set the pace in the first two games as this will give the Chipolopolo a good chance as any team in the group.
