Ex-Chipolopolo defender Laughter Chilembi says Zambia could have beaten Cameroon in Saturday’s 2018 World Cup qualifier that finished 1-1 in Limbe.
Zambia gave away a 33rd minute lead to draw with Cameroon who equalised via a controversial penalty.
Chilembi said Cameroon’s display against Zambia showed that they were beatable.
“We played well despite some lapses,” the retired Nchanga Rangers full back said.
“It is good that we scored away in Camerooon and it is not easy to score away.
We were winning that game had we not conceded that penalty,” Chilembi said.
The draw saw Zambia move one notch up, to third on one point, exchanging places with Algeria who also have one point, after losing 3-1 away to leaders Nigeria, who have the maximum six points.
“With luck, we can go to the World Cup. We just need to be more focused and work hard,” he said.
Zambia will now host Algeria in August next year.
