Ahead of next month’s qualifier against the Chipolopolo of Zambia in Uyo, the former Sporting Gijon FC defender said he is optimistic the Eagles will scale the Zambian challenge and seal their World Cup qualification ticket.

“We don’t need anyone to tell us that we need to beat Zambia. It is a must-win game and we would seal our ticket after beating them. We are ready to die on the pitch to achieve this aim and put smiles on the faces of Nigerians,” he concluded.

The former AS Monaco star added that he would continue to make sacrifices and do his best in the country’s colours.
