Pinnick wants Super Eagles to be calm, clinical

"This game is as big as World Cup final to me and I am sure I speak for all my teammates and Nigerians in totality".

An ex-international, Segun Odegbami, has appealed to Nigerians to support the Super Eagles in their match against the Chipolopolo of Zambia on Saturday in Uyo.

The Super Eagles can clinch a place in Russian Federation with a win over visiting Zambia on Saturday.

The team which touched down at the Abuja Airport early hour of yesterday and spent night at Chelsea Hotel will be heading to Uyo this morning, in readiness for Saturday's mega World Cup qualifying encounter. Issues of injury are normal in football, Mawere said.

The Belgian has enjoyed a startling run of form that has seen him go from public enemy No 1 to a fan favourite at Old Trafford. United resume Premier League duties after the global break away to Liverpool on Saturday October 14 (12.30pm).

Gernot Rohr's side are at the summit of the group B standing with ten points and a victory in Uyo will secure their ticket to the global showpiece. Considering the fact that Nigeria started the game on a high tempo, however, the South Africans were able to sit back, and hit the Eagles back on the counter.

"I want to commend the NFF, your coaches and the support staff for the great job they have all done in support of your efforts to get to this position. I have no doubt we have the quality to achieve victory, but we will not make the mistake of under-rating the Zambians".

Nigeria made their first appearance in the U.S. 1994 World Cup and also made subsequent appearances in France 1998, Korea/Japan 2002, South Africa 2010 and Brazil 2014.

"We have played four matches in the campaign so far, but this one is the match". We are ready to win.
