Zambia stuns Algeria on road to Russia 2018
Zambia soccer team on Tuesday revived their hope to qualify to the World Cup 2018, as they secured second win over Algeria 1-0, in Hamlaoui Stadium in Constantine province, 420km east of Algiers, in the Group B qualifiers.
Patso Daka scored the sole goal of this game as Zambia reinforces its second place in Group B with 7 points, only 3 points away from top spot Nigeria (10 pts).
On Monday, Nigeria held Cameroon 1-1.
Algeria and Cameroon are virtually out of the race, as they collected 1 points, and 3 points, respectively.
For now, Zambia and Nigeria will fight hard to secure the sole ticket of the group to Russia 2018, although experts believe the Eagles are more likely to make it.
The next round is scheduled for earlier October, as Nigeria hosts Zambia, while Algeria travels to face Cameroon.
