MUKWIMA CHILALA writes
POWER Dynamos midfielder Larry Bwalya says the benchmark set by the COSAFA victory has motivated players in the African Nations Championship (CHAN) squad to work harder.
Bwalya said the players were now focused on producing a positive result in Botswana next Friday in the first leg of the Cameroon 2020 CHAN qualifier.
“Everybody is pushing and motivated, winning the COSAFA Cup makes everyone want to be part of the team,
“I just want to do my best to be in the team, I have to prove to the coaches that I am worthy to be in the team.”
He was happy to be back in the team after missing out on the 2019 COSAFA championship.
The Chipolopolo are currently in camp ahead of the two-legged clash with the Zebras of Botswana.
Zambia will host Botswana on August 3 at National Heroes Stadium.
Winner over two legs will face the victor between Eswatini and Angola in the final qualifying round.
