Chipolopolo midfielder Enock ‘Computer’ Mwepu says he is working hard to earn a starting berth in tomorrow’s Cameroon 2019 Africa Cup of Nations clash against Guinea Bissau at the National Heroes Stadium.
During a pre-match press conference, Mwepu said the team was focused on qualification after missing out on the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
The Austrian Bundesliga player who stars for Red Bull Salzburg said tomorrow’s match would be good to watch.
“It is always the coach’s decision to put in a player, and of course if you are doing fine the coach will see that you are capable,” he said.
“It is the coach’s decision and everyone is ready to play. I think if I get the one spot to play I will appreciate that and work for the country.”
The 2017 Under-20 Africa Cup of Nations winner said Guinea Bissau would be a tough opponent but promised to reap maximum points.
“We expect a tough game but Zambia is a good team so we won’t give up until the final whistle. We will aim to win the game. I think it will be a good match to watch,” Mwepu said.
Zambia hosts Guinea Bissau on Wednesday before engaging the same side away on Sunday in back-to-back engagements.
Guinea Bissau is in joint top position with Mozambique on four points after two matches while Zambia and Namibia are on a point each.
Tomorrow’s match will be Chipolopolo coach Sven Vandenbroeck’s debut home match at the helm of Zambia.
Kickoff is at 17:30 hours with tickets on sale across Shoprite outlets via Computicket.
All tickets for K20 have sold out with only K50, K100 and K300.
