Buchizya Mfune ready for debut Zambia cap


Veteran Green Buffaloes midfielder Buchizya Mfune says he is ready to fight for place in the starting line-up as Zambia face Namibia this Sunday away in Windhoek in a 2016 CHAN first round, first leg qualifier.

Mfune is set to earn his debut Zambia cap after being named in the final 18-member squad by coach George Lwandamina.

Despite a promising career at Kitwe United before going to Green Buffaloes, Mfune was never selected for the national team.

“I have no pressure so far and everything is going on well,” he said.

“There is always competition for places in the national team but I am adapting,” Mfune said.

Meanwhile, Zambia will host Namibia in the final leg on July 4 with the winner over both legs to face victor of the other first round tie between Mozambique and The Seychelles in the final round decider in October for a place at next years finals in Rwanda.
