Chipolopolo skipper, Rainford Kalaba, has declared that they would compound Algeria’s woes in the race to the Russia 2018 World Cup when they clash in August next year in Ndola.
Chipolopolo last weekend secured a 1-1 away draw against Cameroon, a result which Kalaba says is a sign of good things to come in the qualifiers which they started on a bad note with a 1-2 home loss to Nigeria.
The TP Mazembe strongman believes things can only get better for Zambia after Saturday’s solid performance away to the Indomitable Lions.
Collins Mbesuma netted for the visitors whilst Vincent Aboubakar found an equaliser for the hosts.
Wedson Nyirenda’s men took the lead, but allowed the seven-time FIFA World Cup finalists to come back and settle for a 1-1 away draw to collect their first point from two rounds of matches played in the Russia 2018 Group B qualifiers.
“If we continue to play the way we did against Cameroon, then the sky’s the limit,” Kalaba said.
“We started with a loss, then a draw and I think the next game which is against Algeria would be a win.”
Zambia now have one point and sit at the third spot, five points behind leaders Nigeria and one point adrift of second placed Cameroon.
While Zambia hosts Algeria, Nigeria would same weekend play host to Cameroon in the other match of the group.
