Shepolopolo wants to reach the final of the 2018 COSAFA Women’s Championship to be staged in South Africa after winning bronze at last year’s event.
The Zambia Women National Team has regrouped in Lusaka to prepare for the regional tournament that starts on August 26.
Assistant coach Kape Saili told FAZfootball.com that the team was hoping to do better than the bronze they won last year.
“The team is doing very well. A good number of the girls have already reported for camp and the few not yet here should be joining us by the end of the day today,” Saili said.
“It will be a wonderful thing if we go into the final of the COSAFA final and even lift it because it has eluded us for a long time. We are hoping that this year we can get the gold,” she said.
Shepolopolo will use the COSAFA Cup to prepare for the 2018 Africa Cup coming up in November in Ghana.
“Our target is to get into the final because we are going to use the COSAFA Cup as a stepping stone to the Africa Cup,” she said.
