Super Eagles’ captain Mikel John Obi has declared the players have no need to say too much before Saturday’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying match against Zambia’s Chipolopolo.
Super Eagles skipper, John Obi Mikel said “We know how important the match is; that is enough motivation to go all out and give our very best.
“There are several players in this team who have not played at the FIFA World Cup. They want to be there in Russia next year.
“The talking will be done on the pitch. I have no doubt we have the quality to achieve victory, but we will not make the mistake of underrating the Zambians.”
Mikel told thenff.com that a good run in the qualifying campaign has been down to focus, determination and massive support of all Nigerians, and believes the same indices are in place for Saturday.
“The Super Eagles has played four matches in the campaign so far, but this one is the match.
“We are fully focused and ready. All we want is the usual support and encouragement by everyone involved, including the fans who will turn out at the match venue.”
A Victory for Super Eagles on Saturday will guarantee Nigeria’s sixth FIFA World Cup appearance. The match kicks off at 5 pm.
