Nigeria vs Zambia: Rohr reveals why Super Eagles must win on Saturday

"For the fans I want you to give more than 100 percent to the team".

That will leave the other two slots to be decided next month.

Victory for Nigeria on Saturday in Uyo will book the country their ticket to next year's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Nigeria ended up with a four-goal victory against the Indomitable Lions in a game played on Friday, September 1.

"We must wrap this race up on Saturday".

The rave of the moment in Zambian football, Patson Daka was next to depart the session halfway as the Red Bull Salzburg forward ‎suffered what looked like a knee injury shortly after the team started light jogging.

If the Nigerian men win, they will join Germany, England, Brazil, Iran, Japan, Mexico, Belgium, Saudi Arabia, South Korea and hosts Russian Federation as teams already guaranteed to be at the 32-team tournament. We are fully focused and ready. "So we have to have a good preparation and also change tactics, also to be more unsafe and to be able to surprise them", he concluded.

"I have spoken to them that the approach should be to take full control from the beginning and take the chances that come without being too anxious".

"I am feeling good since coming back to the team".

As for Ghana their only chance of a fourth consecutive World Cup finals is victory in Uganda and Egypt failing to beat Congo.

Tunisia are away to Guinea and must better the result of second-place Democratic Republic of Congo, who face Libya, to clinch qualification from Group A.

Shonga is likely to face Chippa United goalkeeper, Daniel Akpeyi, who is in the Nigeria squad for Saturday's match, should both players be selected to play on the weekend.

The Elephants' task has been made more hard by injuries that have ruled out Wilfried Zaha, Seydou Doumbia, Max Gradel, Gervinho, Adama Traore and Jean-Michael Seri.
