Promising Mighty Mufulira Wanderers playmaker Lameck Silwaba is excited to receive his debut Zambia call-up ahead of the May 10 friendly against Malawi in Lusaka.
Janza on Wednesday named Silwaba in his 26-member team for the Malawi friendly and next month’s COSAFA Cup in South Africa.
The 21-year-old star prospect has been instrumental for Mighty so far in the FAZ Super League.
In an interview from Mufulira on Thursday, Silwaba declared that time is ripe for him to play for Chipolopolo.
“I am happy.It feels good to be called to the national team,” Silwaba said.
“This will motivate me to work even harder,” he said.
Silwaba is the first Wanderers player to receive a call-up in the last 11 years.
“I don’t know what to expect in the national team because this is my first time but I believe time has come for me to play in the national team,” Silwaba concluded.
