Pinnick wants Super Eagles to be calm, clinical

Gernot Rohr, the Super Eagles Head Coach, has vowed to win Saturday's World Cup qualifier against the Chipolopolo of Zambia for sick goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme.

Nigeria's Super Eagles, leading the 2018 World Cup African qualifying Group B with 10 points need a win in Uyo to join the rest of the ten teams who are already through to the Mundial in Russian Federation.

Ezenwa, who to AOIFootball.com after the team's training session in Uyo on Tuesday, said they are bonding well and are in high spirit ahead of the must-win match.

Akpeyi told Chippa's website: "We have come this far and now with only a point to qualify we must give 100 percent".

That will leave the other two slots to be decided next month.

According to him, Nigerians should support Super Eagles through vocal and their prayers, because it is a game that Nigeria must win.

Nigeria will secure a sixth appearance at the global football showpiece by winning in Uyo against Zambia, the only other Group B contenders. We are fully focused and ready.

Zambia's young side revived their chances of reaching Russian Federation with home and away wins over Algeria in September after picking up just one point from their opening two matches.

"Zambia are now a much better team than when we beat them a year ago".

"We very much appreciate the role Your Excellency, the Government and good people of Akwa Ibom State, the NFF and Nigerians from all walks of life have played to get us to this position in this campaign".
