Tembo eyes regular Zambia slot

Chipolopolo midfielder Fwayo Tembo says he hopes to be a more regular fixture in the national team having been on and off in the Zambian squad set up.

Tembo, who is part of the locally assembled national team currently in camp told that having missed out on key national assignments in the past, he was now focused on being part of the Chan, African of Nations and World Cup qualifiers that make up a very busy 2017 calendar.

Chipolopolo coach Wedson Nyirenda is currently drilling 27 local players who form part of his plans for the Chan, Africa Cup of Nations and World Cup races.

Tembo who is now on the books of Power Dynamos was part of Nyirenda’s squad that played in an international friendly match against Zimbabwe away in Harare on March 26 which ended 0-all.

“I have never won anything at the national team, now the Chan is near so I hope I can win something with the national team this time around,” he said.

“It is not going to be an easy year with the Chan, the Africa Cup and World Cup qualifiers but we will do our best.”

Tembo has never played at the Africa Cup of Nations nor has been part of Zambia’s two appearances at the Chan in 2009 (Ivory Coast) and 2016 (Rwanda).

Meanwhile the team had its morning session at Nkoloma Stadium with physical trainer Milos Buzjic leading the squad through an intense workout before the coaching bench took over the proceedings.

Goalkeeper coach Stephen Mwansa confined his members in Racha Kola, Allan Chibwe and Kelvin Malunga to the goal area where they went through their session.

The Zambia national team will have its first assignment on June 13, 2017 in an Africa Cup qualifier against Mozambique while they will also host Swaziland on the weekend of 14-16 July and be way in Mbabane on the weekend of July 21-23 in the qualifiers.
