Elderson Echiejile has said that Nigeria must kick off their World Cup qualifier against Zambia on a winning note, saying that starting their campaign away from home reduces pressure on the team.
The Standard Liège left full back made coach Gernot Rohr’s squad for the trip to Ndola, as the Super Eagles battle the Chipolopolo at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium on Sunday.
“The fixture is a really good start for us. At least starting away is good because it takes off the pressure, so we will just go out there and get a good result,” Echiejile told postzambia
“If we start very well with the away game that will really be good for us.
“To be sincere it is not going to be easy. But with hard work, and commitment, and playing well as a team, it is going to be a positive result at the end.”
