Chipolopolo skipper Rainford Kalaba says the Chipolopolo are focused on winning the the 2018 Russia World Cup qualifier on Sunday against Nigeria. Kalaba told The Post that his team would like to welcome new coach Wedson Nyirenda (Wada) with a win.
“We are looking forward to the game. We are a full squad, everyone is putting in their best, from now onwards it will be hard work. It will be good to welcome the coach with a win on Sunday,” Kalaba said.
“Football is played on the pitch. They (Nigeria) have been Champions and we have been champions, so the final whistle will determine who will win.” He further urged the fans to turn out in huge numbers to support the team on Sunday. “The only thing I can say is that supporters should be there for us, because it is not ours alone, it is for the whole country. When the supporters are behind the team, the stadium fully packed, we will always get results,” the TP Mazembe player said. The match will kick off at 2.30pm local time, 1.30 pm Nigerian time.
