Patson Daka is one of the best finishers – Grant

Chipolopolo head coach Avram Grant was full of praise for striker Patson Daka following his heroics on Sunday at the Dobsonville Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The Leicester City forward scored a brace to guide Zambia to a 2-0 win over Lesotho to move top of Group H. 

The Israeli gaffer heaped praise on Daka describing the Kafue Celtic product as one of the top finishers. 

“Daka did a very good job in the first game.He moved a lot and today (Sunday) he knew what to do, being one of the top finishers, but he also created some chances. The team combination was good,” Grant said.  

“We have more chances of qualifying with nine points but still nothing is finished yet. We have to play against Ivory Coast and Comoros to finish the job, but I think we are on the right path,” he added. 

Daka scored either side of halftime to hand Zambia their second win over Lesotho in a space of three days. 

The win on Sunday Zambia had finally managed to win three straight AFCON qualifiers for the first time in 24 years. 

Zambia currently sit top of Group H with nine points ahead of Ivory Coast on 7. Comoros are in third who have played a game less have 3 points while Lesotho are dead last with only a point to their name.
