The former Indeni Roses forward have now set her sight on scoring or assisting a goal in each of the games she will be playing in with her Kazakhstan side.
“First of all, I thank the almighty God for scoring today. My target here is that every game I play I have to score if I didn’t score at least to assist that is my target here,” Zulu said.
The Zambia U20 Women’s national team came out second at the inaugural COSAFA U20 Women’s Cup and Misozi was quick to advise them to keep working hard so that they can reach the highest level.
“For the young ones am so happy for the job well done (finishing as runners up at the inaugural COSAFA U20 Women’s Cup) they should continue working hard and I believe that one day they will reach where we are now,” she said.
Teammate Rachel Kundananji also opened her UEFA Women’s Champions League goal account becoming the second player from Zambia to score in the prestigious Competition.
