We will beat Zambia roundly, vows Nigeria’s full back

Super Eagles right full back, Chibuzor Okonkwo has said they will make up for the barren draw against the Zebras of Botswana with the Chipolopolo of Zambia.

The Eagles under new manager, Stephen Keshi battled Afcon debutants, Botswana to a goalless draw in an international friendly on Saturday at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City. Nigeria’s Super Eagles face the Zambians in Kaduna on Tuesday.

Okonkwo who did not get playing time in the encounter against Botswana told SuperSport.com that the Zambians will be beaten roundly.

“We’ll make up for the draw against Botswana with a win against Zambia in Kaduna.

“We played very well against Botswana, we created chances only that we didn’t convert the chances into goals.

“It’ll be a different ball game against Zambia.

“Every country in Africa wants to beat Super Eagles but from now on no country will escape defeat in our hands and it will start with Zambia,” he said.

The Heartland strong man informed SuperSport.com that he is comfortable playing under Keshi.

“Yes, I played under coach Siasia, I don’t have any problem with the new coach Keshi.

“I will continue to work hard, and once I get a playing chance I will always give my best,” he said.
