World Cup Cracker: Zambian Coach, Wedson Nyirenda Keeps His Secret Weapon Against Nigeria To His Chest
Zambian coach, Wedson Nyirenda, has refused to reveal his tactics for their 2018 World Cup cracker against Nigeria on Saturday, October 7, 2017 at Akwa Ibom.
According to Daily Post, when asked if he would sit back and absorb pressure from the Super Eagles and catch them on counter attack with his young, energetic and fast players, he told Complete Sports: “I am not going to tell you how we would play because that will be disclosing my game plan.

“When we get to the pitch, we shall size up the Eagles and know how to play them. The Eagles are more experienced and exposed, but we shall play to our strength.”
Nyirenda also spoke on losing 2-1 to Nigeria in the reverse leg last year in Ndola.
“We weren’t expecting a defeat when the Super Eagles beat us in Ndola last year, but my thinking then was that we did enough to get at worst a draw.
“Again, I was barely 15 days on the job as head coach when we played that match. Since then, we have remained unbeaten and have improved very much. I inherited a team which I have been able to turn around to my taste and delight of Zambians,” he added.
