The Super Eagles require only the minimum win against the Chipolopolo on Saturday to join 10 other nations that have already qualified for the 32-team football showpiece in Russian Federation in 2018.

The Super Eagles current squad is gifted with talented and prolific wingers that can cause damage to any team.

But the "Carthage Eagles" have a woeful record in Conakry, losing four previous World Cup qualifiers in the West African coastal city.

"We want to make the nation proud, which is very important. Football is about teamwork and all the guys are pulling their weight which augers well for the team". While a win is only a realistic chance for Zambia to reviving their World Cup hopes.

"They don't want to say anything".

"I talked to the players and told them that the best way to win this game is to take full control from the beginning without being too anxious".

"It is nice that we have control of our destiny - a win takes us to Russian Federation".

Ivory Coast, who have a narrow one point advantage over Morocco in Group C, have a tough match in Mali on Friday.

Nigeria started the World Cup qualification campaign in what many soccer pundits predicted to be the group of death in a blistering form with a defeat 2-1 defeat of Zambia in Ndola to pick their first away win.
