Zambian national team coac,h Wedson Nyirenda believes they can still reach Russia in 2018 despite their 1-1 draw against Cameroon.

A first half goal allowed the Zambians to have their first point in the group when Collins Mbesuma netted in the 34th minute.

However, Chipolopolo conceded a penalty which allowed the Indomitable Lions to score through Vincent Aboubakar allowing Nyirenda's side to erase their 2-1 loss to Nigeria last month.

In his post match comments, Nyirenda said they are still in contention to book their maiden ticket to the World Cup in Russia.

“We are still in contention, we have two games at home which have to maximize then other games away…one of them we have to pick a win,” Nyirenda said.

“If we can play like this here, the future is bright.”

Furthermore, a confident Nyirenda said the future for the Chipolopolo is bright going by the performance in Cameroon as they now hope to meet Algeria in August next year.

They are scheduled to host the bottom-placed Desert Warriors in August before visiting them in September next year and 'Wada' will want victories to keep their hopes alive. (NAN)
