Striker Christopher Katongo says he will work hard after making the 33-member Zambia team for this months’ 2017 Africa Cup Group E qualifiers.
Katongo earned his place in the Group E doubleheader qualifier against Congo-Brazzaville after inspiring Zambia to the quarterfinals of the 2016 CHAN tournament held in Rwanda in January where he scored a goal in 1-0 win over Uganda.
Katongo said he wants to impress the George Lwandamina bench in a bid to earn a place in the final squad.
“I have been called up to the Chipolopolo team for games against Congo. Now I need to work hard to impress and make the team,” Katongo wrote on his Face Book page on Thursday.
The Green Buffaloes forward is returning to the team after a year out of the team.
“Thanks to everyone for all the support,” he added.
