Zambia Under-20 striker Edward Chilufya is seeking to win the golden boot at next month’s FIFA World Cup in South Korea.
Chilufya scored four times at the Junior Africa Cup to emerge joint top scorer alongside his team mate Patson Daka and South Africa’s Luther Singh.
The Kasama’s Mpande Academy forward says he is targeting to score at least five goals in Korea where Zambia will face Portugal, Costa Rica and Iran in Group C.
“I want to score five goals or more. I want to win the top scorer award very much,” Chilufya said.
“I am working hard in training and I need to work harder,” he said.
He is confident Zambia will excel at the World Cup.
“Training is progressing well. We are working hard so that we can win the World Cup,” Chilufya said.
He added:”I am appealing to our supporters to give us more support like they did during the Africa Cup.”
Coach Beston Chambeshi’s Junior Chipolopolo are going to the World Cup after clinching the 2017 Africa Cup trophy on home soil in March.
