2018 World Cup qualifying game (Nigeria vs Zambia)




The World Cup qualifying game coming up on Saturday, 7th October 2017 at Uyo between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Chipolopolo of Zambia is a match any football fan in Nigeria cannot afford to miss. This is a game that may appear to surprise everyone at the end and as at now, it is a trending topic on local sports programs and outlet. The interesting thing about the game is that a win for Nigeria will secure an automatic ticket while a win for Zambia will raise their hope of qualifying for the world cup in 2018 by closing the gap between both teams so it will be an extremely intense match, however, don't hate me I'm having that feeling that the game might just end in a draw which is not too bad and not too good for both teams this implies that the Super Eagles chance of qualifying for the World Cup will be postponed until the last game against Algeria which we don't want to look forward to though that doesn't mean I'm a very bad fan or unpatriotic Nigerian for letting out my feelings I just feel too many people have belittled the Zambian team and even some have gone extra mile in predicting that Nigeria will win the game by 4 goals to nil, 3 goals to nil, 3 goals to 1 and so on anyways optimism is not a bad thing but my inner feelings keeps telling me that it might just end in a draw. Also I feel there is too much expectations and pressure on the Super Eagles of Nigeria which is not a good thing for the team while the Chipolopolo of Zambia are less pressured and they might just play the game like they have nothing to lose nonetheless I don't see Nigeria lose the game though it's either a win or draw and I feel it might just end in a draw but as a fan I think I'm entitled to my opinion don't judge me it's just a feeling. Finally, we still need to keep all hopes alive and be optimistic that the Super Eagles of Nigeria can grab that needed win to secure their place automatically in the 2018 World Cup in Russia and I hope they win the game so that our fate can be decided once and for all.


What do you think of the game?
