THE Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) believe that the Chipolopolo will eventually pull through to be among the two teams that will qualify for the 2022 Cameroon AFCON.

FAZ president Andrew Kamanga said it was disappointing that the team failed to beat Botswana in the return leg fixture because a lot of investments had gone through preparations for the two back-to-back fixtures and government through the Ministry of Sports also gave the team all the support.
However Kamanga said the association is comforted by the gap between the bottom three teams in Group H.
“We believe that we will eventually pull through to be among the two teams that will qualify from our group. We will wait for the technical bench to give us their programme that they believe will help them meet our expectations.
“We hope that we can rebound in the remaining fixtures at home to Algeria and away to Zimbabwe in March next year,” Kamanga said.
Meanwhile, Kamanga said the African Nations Championship (CHAN) set to kick off in January next year will be a good platform for Zambia to prepare for the final round of AFCON qualifiers.
Kamanga said FAZ expect that the players will rise to the occasion and die a little for their country.
And Kamanga hailed the Zambia under-17 boys team for starting its campaign at the 2020 COSAFA Under-17 men’s competition with a win against Angola who were the region’s representatives at the last AFCON in Tanzania.
The junior Chipolopolo only need a win to qualify and may clinch their ticket to Morocco with a win against Malawi today.
