We all know what is at stake – Gamphani Lungu

It’s a swim or sink affair for the Chipolopolo Boys who host Algeria and visit Zimbabwe in a space of five days in a back-to-back 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Zambia has to pick all 6 points available to stand a chance to qualify for the AFCON. Coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has already named a strong squad for the two matches.

Players from outside the country have started trooping in with a South African-based duo of striker Gamphani Lungu and goalkeeper Cyril Mwenya Chibwe being the newest to join the camp on Sunday afternoon.

Speaking upon arrival at the Kenneth Kaunda international airport Gamphani Lungu told the ZamFoot Crew in an interview that he is ready to die for mother Zambia.

“Honestly we all know what’s at stake here like we have not been to the AFCON for a while now and we all want to get there and everyone that is coming for this game knows what we are going to fight for we are fighting for our nation and we need to get the best result,” Lungu said

The Supersport United forward believes Zambia has what it takes to qualify for the AFCON. Gampy feels honored to play for Chipolopolo and says he will play his lungs out when/if called upon.

“Our team has all the quality you can ask for a cause in every department, we just need to keep on working hard and trusting each other that’s all we need to do. Trust each other, fight for each other, fight for the country that’s what we need to do so we are playing two games, that is Algeria which is our starting point let’s not think of Zimbabwe now let’s just think of Algeria right now let’s take one game at a time,” he said.

“Honestly for me, I feel like am going to give my best for the nation. I am going to fight, I’m going to run my lungs out on the field for the country and it’s up to the coaches cause the coaches are the ones that get to pick the team. We are just going to wait and see whoever is picked on that day that’s the best eleven for the day it’s not about who’s better than the rest but it’s about who can carry the day on that day,” he added.

To the fans Lungu had this to say: Just keep on being behind us that’s all we ask for our fellow countrymen to be behind us.”

Zambia plays two must-win Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Algeria on Thursday 25th March and Zimbabwe on 29th March.
