George Lwandmiana insists Zambia are still very much in the hunt for qualification to the 2017 Africa Cup.
This is despite picking up just two out of a possible six points in their Group E qualifying doubleheader against Congo-Brazzaville over the last week.
Zambia were held 1-1 by Congo at home in Ndola on March 23 before they fought back on March 27 in Brazzaville to finish by the same scoreline.
The results see Congo and Zambia drop a place each to 2nd and 3rd respectively but tied on 6 points while Guinea Bissau raced past them into top spot on 7 points after four matches played.
Guinea Bissau beat Kenya 1-0 home and away to upset the commanding order in Group E.
“I am sure we still have two more games we to play one with Guinea who are now topping the group and then play Kenya,” Lwandamina said.
“I am sure we can collect maximum points and come top.”
Zambia visit Guinea Bissau on June 3 in a penultimate Group E match before hosting Kenya in their final fixture on September 2.
