Chipolopolo striker Patson Daka was left impressed with the team’s performance as they thrashed Uganda 3-0 in an international friendly match on Tuesday.
The smiling assassin was happy to bask in the glory of the convincing win over the East African side in the United Arab Emirates.
Daka also hailed the team’s mentality to come back from a loss against Egypt and then put up such a dominant performance.
“Well, it was a great performance to be honest from the team. It showed great character from the previous game we played. Everyone knew how important this game was. I am happy everyone came with full force and we were all focused to get a victory and finish this camp with a positive result which we got and not just a win but a convincing win. I think we did everything great, it was a good win for the team,” said.
The Leicester City forward was also quick to warn against Complacency as he believes the team still has a few things to work on and improve.
Daka believes the system is working and the team should continue on this path as they are headed in the right direction.
“We have to continue preparing well, we have to continue working hard. Everyday is a different challenge, so the way we have played today does not mean we are ready for next month’s games. What we do everyday from now will determine how ready we are for the next challenge. We don’t have to rely much on this victory but build on it because there are some areas we need to improve so we don’t have to be complacent with this victory but make it our stepping stone,” he said.
“So far so good. We have seen how we play together and support each other. Yes it’s a new system but it’s bringing results so it means we are heading in the right direction and just need to continue doing what we are doing.”
Daka scored a brace to guide Zambia to a 3-0 win over Uganda on Tuesday to end the October FIFA window on a positive note.
Next up for Zambia are two 2026 World Cup qualifiers against Congo and Niger.
The Chipolopolo Boys are in Pool E with the two nations, Morocco, Tanzania, Niger and Eritrea.
