CHIPOLOPOLO goalkeeper Allan Chibwe has predicted a tough match as they meet Namibia in their final game against neigbours Namibia tomorrow at the ongoing CHAN tournament in Cameroon.
Initially left out of the provisional team for the travelling party to the tournament late last month, Chibwe has been instrument in Zambia’s last two games against Tanzania and Guinea respectively where he has manned the goal post ahead of Lameck Siame and Charles Kalumba.
But Chibwe has predicted a tough game against Namibia just like in their last encounter at the 2018 edition in which Zambia faced the Zebra’s in their final group game at the tournament held in Morocco.
Chibwe noted that his team was however looking forward to beating their neighbours so as to top the group and face the second best team from group C.
Chibwe said the team will come up with a good plan on how to beat Namibia and says that they have a good coach in the Serb Milutin “Micho” Sredejovic.
”We have gone back to training and are working hard and plan against Namibia in our final group game. We are expecting a tough match like what happened in the final game last time (2018) we played them and drew against them. So we are looking forward to winning against them so that we can top the group,” Chibwe said.
And Chibwe said he would continue working hard and fighing for the nation and his place in the team despite picking a knock in the game against Guinea.
”God has granted me this opportunity to maximise my talent, for me I though it wasn’t very bad (injury) until the doctor told me at half time on how severe the injury is but I will continue to fight for the nation and my position to convince the coach that I can do better becuase a small knock cannot take me away from the game,”
Zambia are on four points tied with leaders Guinea but separated by a goal diffrence while Tanzania are in third with three points with Namibia at the bottom with zero points.
Zambia face Namibia tomorrow in their final group game in which they need at least a draw to qualify to the quarter finals.
