Mutiu Adepoju has charged Nigeria to prepare for October’s Fifa World Cup qualifying against Zambia like a World Cup final after a pleasing performance against Cameroon.

Gernot Rohr’s men need at least a draw against the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations champions to secure their place in Russia next year.

“So proud of the SuperEagles, they buried the fear Cameroon bring. Next up is Zambia, we must prepare for that game like a W/Cup final,” Adepoju tweeted.
