Chan skipper talks up team chances

Chipolopolo goalkeeper Jacob Banda says the early preparations for the African Nations Championship (Chan) will help the team be better prepared for their encounter against Swaziland in July.

And striker Ronald ‘Sate Sate’ Kampamba says he will work hard to ensure that he makes the Chan team.

Meanwhile Wedson Nyirenda had a full house of his call ups for the local camp with the exception of four Power Dynamos and one Buildcon player who starred in Monday’s league fixture involving the two teams.

Banda who is the captain for the CHAN team told that the consistent local camps would make it easier for the team to compete when the qualifiers begin.

“The team is coming up and shaping up well and we are going somewhere,” he said.

“The chances for qualifying for the CHAN are very high, looking at the way we are preparing; we are going to make it.”

And Kampamba said competition in the squad was stiff but he would work hard to make the cut.

Zambia faces Swaziland in the preliminaries of the Kenya 2018 CHAN qualifiers.

Wedson Nyirenda’s side will join the CHAN party in July when Zambia take to the road in a first round, first leg match away at the artificial pitch in Lobamba.

The first leg meeting is set for July 16 while the return leg will be played on July 22.

The winner will advance to the final qualifying stage in August where they will face the victor between South Africa and Botswana for the ticket to the Kenya finals.
