The Zambia Soccer Fans Association (ZAVOSOFA) says this weekend’s game between Zambia and Rwanda in Kigali is a ‘must win’ for Zambia.
ZAVOSOFA Patron Peter Makembo said this weekend’s game was the only hope for the team to qualify to the Africa cup in Angola next year.
Makembo said the Chipolopolo boys should be defensive in their play and not allow any goal despite Rwanda having an advantage of home ground.
He advised the team to be focused and not take Rwanda for granted because it is also fighting to qualify to the Africa cup of nations tournament.
Meanwhile, Makembo has disclosed that a sum of K10 billion has been donated by some companies towards this weekend’s encounter between the two teams.
Makembo named some of the companies that have donated the money as MTN Zambia and Zain Zambia among others.
He stressed that the money was given to the President Rupiah Banda.
Makembo appealed to the President to share the money equally between the soccer fans and the national team because the team needs soccer fans.
He also requested Mr. Banda to pay for the chartered plane that would ferry supporters to Rwanda.
