Nigeria have qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup for the 6th time with a 1-0 win over Zambia thanks to a second goal from Arsenal playmaker Alex Iwobi.

The Super Eagles had only needed a win to seal a spot in the 32-nation competition next summer in Russian Federation.

The former Chelsea FC of England enforcer stated 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.

"This is a very crucial game and it will determine our chances of going to our first World Cup", he said.

"No matter how I rate the Zambians, it's too late for them to qualify for the World Cup".

On the other hand, Cameroon are third in the group with six points and Algeria with just one point, both from five games. How can the Eagles be in this position and Zambia will come here and pick a draw? Similarly, it took Cameroon until today to pick up their first win of the group stage as they won 2-0 against Algeria.

"Nigerians have nothing to worry about for Saturday match and I will only appeal to them to remain supportive with their prayers as the team is eager to make them proud", he concluded. As far as I'm concerned, we've collected the World Cup ticket and we are going to Russian Federation next year.

"The Eagles want to win again for Carl", Rohr said.

Former Nigeria worldwide Patrick Pascal assures that the Super Eagles will defeat Zambia, stressing that there is nothing to worry about on Saturday. He is developing confidence with every game.
