Zambia defender Lawrence Chungu is confident that his side will triumph over Zimbabwe in Sunday’s 2017 COSAFA Cup final at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in South Africa.

Zambia and Zimbabwe heads into the final seeking a record fifth COSAFA Cup trophy.

Wedson Nyirenda’s side reached the final after edging Botwana 2-1 in the quarterfinals and Tanzania 4-2 in the semifinals.

In a pre-match interview, Chungu of Power Dynamos said the Chipolopolo were aware of high expectations from fans.

“I am very confident on Sunday we are going to carry the day with God on our side. We expect nothing but to bring the trophy to Zambia,” he said.

This is the first time Zambia have reached the final since winning the 2013 edition as hosts.

“We have to put in a lot so that we can carry the day. The country is expecting more from us,” Chungu said.

Chungu has featured in the two matches Zambia has played so far at the tournament after entering the fray at the quarterfinal stage.

    I can assure you that Zambia will not come out with a clean win. With poor leadership in the country comes poor performance. Zambia will never win any big tournaments until lungu is thrown out back to chawama.

      I do not think we should be worried about these Tribal under 5 jailbirds. They are perpetual losers and they will always be behind the way Mwanawasa put it. Zambians should continue putting them in their correct place. Coming to the game Zambia and Zimbabwe games are always electric. We will watch the game win or lose.

    They say “don’t count your eggs before they are hatched”. Zambia lost.
