Eagles are guests of the Southern African foes in today’s group opening World Cup clash at the 49, 800 seats Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

“Zambia is football playing nation and good side both at club and national level they have always proven themselves in every championship.

“They are the least side any opponent will want to treat with levity or underrate without regretting the action at the end of the day.

“We should not fear them but accord the side their due respect I do not think they will pose too much problem.
