Patson and Mwepu asked to honour Kalale with 2022 Qatar qualification


Ex-Zambia Under-17 coach Chris Kaunda has told his junior proteges Patson Daka and Enock Mwepu to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar to honour their friend and late midfielder Changwe Kalale.

The ex-Zambia Under-17 star , who was left paralyzed after road accident in December2014, died on Sunday following a short illness in Lusaka where he had gone for his routine check-up.

Kalale inspired Zambia to its debut U17 AFCON appearance but missed the trip following the tragic accident that left him confined to a wheel chair.

The late Kalale sustained a spinal injury on his way for Chipolopolo’s pre-tournament camp in Lusaka for the 2015 AFCON.

“To the rest, Patson, Mwepu, Prosper (Chiluya), Wayne Museba, our dream was Qatar, please please, you can still honour your colleague, your brother by fulfilling our final agreement, “Kaunda said.

Patson and Mwepu are now fully fledged Chipolopolo members following their 2017 U20 AFCON win as hosts in March and 2017 FIFA U20 World Cup quarterfinal placing last June in South Korea.
