Speaking with Times of Zambia before the team departed for their pre-camping tour in Ghana, The Zanaco defender said there is nothing special about Nigeria, as he insists the game pion is just like any other game.
“Nigeria’s dominance over us is history for we are looking at the future and what will matter most in the game is our application on the pitch. We are not inferior to Nigeria, the only difference is that most of our players play in Africa and theirs play in Europe,” Tembo said.
“There is nothing sinister about the Nigeria game, it’s a game like any other we have played before. Yes they have a good side and have quality players and we can’t take that away from them but they are beatable,” Tembo concluded.
