Zambia will be mean says Lawal



Former Nigerian international, Garba Lawal has warned the Super Eagles against overlooking African champions, Zambia.

In the last three weeks, Zambia's Chipolopolo lost to Tanzania and Angola and drew with Morocco.

But Lawal has refused to be carried away by the results churned out by the Zambians in their pre-Africa Cup of Nations matches.

"Honestly I refuse to overlook the Zambians just because they have not done well in their friendly matches. Anyone writing them off because of the results in their recent friendly matches should have a re-think.

"Last year they won the Nations Cup. And before they won it, the Super Eagles defeated them 2-0 in Kaduna in 2011. At that time no one gave them a chance but they went on to win it. So I refuse to be carried away by their poor results in friendly matches and the Super Eagles too shouldn't be carried away that they will find the Zambians easy," warned the 38-year-old.

Zambia will face Norway in another pre-Afcon friendly in Ndola on Saturday while Nigeria take on Dutch club, FC Rotterdam in Faro, Portugal same day.

Nigeria and Zambia will come face-to-face in Group C of the Afcon in South Africa on January 25.
