As the Super Eagles captain, Mikel John Obi, has insisted that the Eagles will complete their job of picking the Group B, Russia 2018 ticket with a resounding victory over the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon today in Younde, his Zambia counterpart and goalkeeper, Kennedy Mweene, is optimistic that Nigeria will not beat Cameroon again in Yaounde, just as his team aims to do the double over Algeria in forthcoming decisive 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
The road to Russia 2018 gathered momentum at the weekend with Nigeria cementing their leadership of their qualifying group with a 4-0 thrashing of Cameroon, while Zambia shot to second place, after they outscored Algeria 3-1 in Lusaka.
Mweene, who has taken over the captaincy of The Chipolopolo in the absence of Rainford Kalaba, has now said his team will gun for a second victory over bottom team Algeria on Tuesday and he does not expect Nigeria to win in Cameroon today, so as to leave the group’s qualification race wide open.
The South Africa-based shot stopper declared: “We are still not under pressure because of Nigeria’s lead. We are solely focused on getting at least six points against Algeria.
“If Nigeria wins in Cameroon and we win in Algeria, then it will be between us and them
“But mark my words, Nigeria won’t win in Cameroon, it won’t happen.” Mweene said.
