Team work is in Fashion
Zambia U23 national team striker Fashion Sakala refused to take the limelight ahead of tomorrow’s Egypt U23 AFCON qualifier against Congo Brazzaville.
The Belgium based forward believes the ‘Bola na Lesa’ Boys have a good team and he is confident they will carry the day.
“To be honest there is nothing to promise, We just have to do work as a team. We going there to do it as a team, Am not going there as an individual. There is nothing I can promise my fans but there is nothing I can promise my fans I think it’s just a matter of doing it together as a team and is really sure we have a good team, I think we can do it. The only promise I can make is about the win and nothing more, ” he said.
Congo Brazzaville trainer Jean Elie Ngoya singled out the former Zanaco Forward as the most dangerous player in the team but Fashion played it down saying he will not be playing along but playing in a team which he believes is a very good side and he is hoping for a win.
“As a player, it’s about delivering there is nothing like having pressure. I just have to concentrate on what I do. I respect his opinion and his team.
