After impressive display against Cameroon, the next assignment for Nigeria is to silence the Zambian national team who also have a fighting chance of making it to their first senior FIFA World Cup ever.

However, with 5 of the 6 group games been played by each team, it has transpired that Algeria have had a very disappointing campaign, only picking up one point in the process.

The win put them on an unassailable 13 points at the top of Group B.

Super Eagles of Nigeria have become the first African team to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation after beating Zambia.

Nigeria managed to see out the closing stages of the second half with relative ease to claim victory that seals their spot in Russian Federation with one game to spare.

They didn't start well, and now Nigeria have taken the lead in the group, so how can they qualify?

Still he finished with a line of six innings pitched and allowing five hits (four home runs), three walks and seven strikeouts. After a Cody Bellinger single, Yasiel Puig lined a double into center field to give Los Angeles a 4-0 advantage.

"I believe the Eagles will triumph over Zambia 100 per cent".

It is very ironic that it was the man who set the ball rolling in Ndola past year with the first goal in the 2-1 win over Zambia, who actually clinched our place in Russian Federation with the all-important winning goal.

"I have always had great respect for the Super Eagles and its array of world-class players but if there is a team that can beat Nigeria in Nigeria, it's Zambia".

"My wife is Russian, she flew to Russia today for good luck, and she and the kids will be in Russia to cheer us up at the World Cup".

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

He said, "Nigeria can depend on Ezenwa in the match".
