Zambia can’t stop all our stars – Iheanacho


Super Eagles attacker, Kelechi Iheanacho believes Nigeria possesses too much quality for Zambia’s Chipolopolo and has predicted a win in today’s World Cup qualifier in Ndola.

Iheanacho scored the winner in Nigeria‘s last international – a 1-0 victory over Tanzania in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Abuja on September 3.

He is keen to repeat similar heroics at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium, Ndola and reckons his teammates will be too strong for Zambia.

“It’s an away game for us and is going to be a difficult one. We have great players that will make the difference against Zambia.

“We have to overcome Zambia first before we can talk about Cameroon and Algeria.

“However, it’s not going to be easy and nobody knows what is going to happen. We will keep fighting as a team to get to the World Cup,” Iheanacho told

The Manchester City who turned 20 on October 3 also revealed that failure to qualify for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations will serve as motivation for Nigeria to qualify for the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russia.

“It’s unfortunate we missed out on the 2017 AFCON but we are not out of everything. We have all put that behind us and our focus is on the next games.

“We have to take that as a lesson and come back stronger to qualify for the World Cup.

“I will also work hard for my country as an individual; and we are going to put in all hard work collectively as a team.

“To play in the FIFA World Cup will be a dream come true for me and is going to help my career as a player too,” he said.
