Mbola: AFCON big tourney, We need experience
Israel based left back Emmanuel Mbola believes Zambia still need experience going into next’s African Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea.
In an Exclusive Interview with Zambianfootball.co.zm, the former Mining Rangers defender also said the Chipolopolo Boys can have a good tournament if they play as a team.
“We need experience in the team because we are going for a big tournament. I think it will be of great value to include experienced players,” Mbola told the ZamFoot Crew on Tuesday
Mbola is considered as one of the senior players in the team behind the likes Kennedy Mweene, Given Singuluma and Rainford Kalaba.
Though Stopilla Sunzu and Nathan Sinkala are the chosen captains now, Mbola made his competitive international debut much earlier in November 2008 against Angola in backline featuring Elijah Tana and Hichani Himoonde with Singuluma spearheading the attack.
With the coming of Honour Janza, there has been a lot of unrest in the team and behind the players have realised that it’s time to put behind the transition period excuses and work as team.
“We can reach very far and win the cup if we prepare well. We have what it takes to win the AFCON. We just have to prepare and be a team.
“Off course it won’t be easy but we can make it if we work as a team,” Mbola cautioned.
Look out for the full script of the ZamFoot Crew’s interview with Emmanuel Mbola. He talked about his ideal ‘5-aside’ team, his favourite Zambian all time player and a host of issues.
