Felix Katongo says he is working hard to justify his Zambia recall.
Katongo has been recalled to the Zambia fold for the first time since September, 2014.
The midfielder is a late call-up for Zambia’s friendly against Malawi to be played this Sunday at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka.
“I am very happy I can’t lie. I am very happy and will work hard to prove myself and to show people that I am still the way I was,” Katongo said.
Katongo’s last game for Zambia was in a 2-1 away loss to Cape verde on September 10 in a 2015 Africa Cup Group F qualifier.
And Katongo said he was hoping to also make the Cosafa Cup team when Zambia travels to South Africa in a fortnights time to defend their regional crown.
“I am not scared of competition I know myself I have played football in different countries and will accept if the coach puts someone ahead of me,” Katongo said.
“I will be happy for that person but I am not scared of anyone as long as I am here I will take my position.”
