"It’s an away game for us and is going to be a difficult one," Iheanacho told the official website of CAF.

"We have great players that will make the difference against Zambia.

"We have to overcome Zambia first before we can talk about Cameroon and Algeria.

"However, it’s not going to be easy and nobody knows what’s going to happen, we will keep fighting as a team to get to the World Cup."
