Patson Daka relishes full Chipolopolo debut

Sports Patson Daka relishes full Chipolopolo debut

Nchanga Rangers striker Patson Daka says he is excited to have made his full Chipolopolo debut on Saturday when Zambia drew goalless with Guinea Bissau in a 2017 Africa Cup qualifier in Ndola.

Daka, 16, played over 70 minutes as Zambia kicked off the Africa Cup qualifying campaign at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.

The youngster started ahead of well established forwards like Ronald Kampamba, Emmanuel Mayuka and Bornwell Mwape.

“I am very honoured and humbled. It was a privilege for me to start the game. I just want to thank the coach (George Lwandamina) for having confidence in me and for believing in me,” Daka said.

He promised to do better in future games after failing to score in the game against Guinea Bissau.

“I was very disappointed not to score even though I had a chance to score. My job is to score and if I don’t score it means I haven’t worked for the team,” he addded.

This year alone, Daka has featured for the under-17,20 and 23 national teams.

He has also been named in the Zambia CHAN squad for upcoming qualifiers.

Daka is at Nchanga Rangers on loan from K-Stars Football Club of Lusaka.

  1. Patson Daka..16years??? Otherwise, I only see him as Kaluz inclusion because he is from K-Stars. A normal coach could have started Kampamba, Mwape or the misfiring Muyuka especially that George had only 4 days 2 access players
