Our football match prediction:
Levy Mwanawasa Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Zambia and Cameroon. Following back-to-back wins over Algeria, Zambia suffered a 1-0 loss to Nigeria in their last qualifying match and, as a result, they failed to book their place at the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals. The Chipolopolo have little to play for against Cameroon, but they surely want to finish the process in second place in Group B. The Zambians need one point in order to cement second position in the standings and we predict that they will adopt a cautious approach in their last group game. Cameroon aim to build on a 2-0 win over Algeria, but seeing that Nigeria are the only team from Group B that will take part at the next year’s tournament in Russia, we do not believe that away win should be considered. Taking everything into account, share of spoils appears on the cards.

Highlighted Team (Cameroon):
Cameroon are an African team that played their first ever game against Belgian Congo back in 1956. The Indomitable Lions made 7 appearances at the World Cup finals and they recorded their best result at the major tournament in 1990. Cameroon made it to the 1990 World Cup quarter-finals by beating Colombia in the last 16, but England proved to be a big catch for the African team. Speaking of Africa Cup of Nations, Cameroon clinched their fourth CAN trophy in 2002, when they defeated Senegal in the title game. A number of world-class footballers played for the Indomitable Lions in the past and the likes of Samuel Eto’o, Rigobert Song, Roger Milla, Patrick M’Boma, Stephane Mbia and Geremi are the most notable players who were part of the Cameroonian national football team. Samuel Eto’o made 118 appearances for Cameroon, scoring 56 goals for the national team and he is regarded as the team’s top scorer. Eto’o used to play for the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea, Everton and Sampdoria in the past.
