New Chipolopolo call-up Fackson Kapumbu says he is not shocked to be included in the Zambia squad for the 24 March World Cup qualifier against Lesotho.

The Zanaco defender is in the 23-member team that is scheduled to regroup in South Africa on Sunday ahead of the away World Cup qualifier set for Maseru.

In an interview, Kapumbu told LT Sports that he had been looking forward to play for Chipolopolo.

“I am very happy to be called to the national team. I want to play against Lesotho,” he said.

“I am going to work hard in camp because I want to be in the starting line-up,” Kapumbu added.

Other local players in the squad are keepers Racha Kola of Zanaco and Joshua Titima of Power Dynamos, midfielder Mulenga Mukuka (Power), midfielder Rodrick Kabwe (Zanaco) and striker Bornwell Mwape (Nchanga Rangers).

  1. Atleast he helped to defend, just 1 goal from Pirates, Zanaco must have a strong defense.

  2. I don’t know the lad, but it’s good to know that something is being done about the shaky defence we displayed in the nations cup tournament. Keep it up Chipolopolo and Good luck! But hey, soccer has changed so much. There were times when one didnt need the actual match to be played to know the result of a Zambia-Lesotho encounter. The only unknown about a Zambia victory would be its MARGIN !
