Zambia next 2017 Africa Cup Group E opponents Guinea Bissau are feeling confident about securing their home game against Chipolopolo in June.
Guinea Bissau stealthy rose to the summit of Group E after 1-0 home and away victories over bottom placed Kenya to take a one point lead of the pool.
The Group E victories were coach Baciro Cande first in charge since taking over from Paulo Torres who left the job in February due to a four-match CAF ban that ruled him out of the qualifiers.
Torres was banned following a bust-up with a match official in their 0-0 away draw against Zambia last June.
Guinea Bissau next host Zambia on June 3 in a penultimate Group E fixture looking for a win that could end Chipolopolo’s interest in the qualifiers.
“We are now top of the group and with two matches remaining we can think about the dream,E Cande is qouted by Portuguese sports daily O Jogo.
“We want to build on this latest win as we head to the next game.”
Guinea Bissau have 7 points while second placed Congo and third positioned Zambia are separated on goal difference tied on 6 points.
Kenya are bottom with 1 point from four games played.
