Red Arrows midfielder Bruce Musakanya is upbeat as Zambia prepares to participate at the 2019 COSAFA Cup in South Africa.
Chipolopolo, who have been handed a COSAFA Cup group stage bye, will enter the competition on June 2 in the quarterfinals of the tournament running from May 25 to June 8 in Durban.
Musakanya, who has been named in the provisional squad, said time has come for Zambia to reclaim the COSAFA Cup.
He was part of the last Zambia team to have to won the COSAFA Cup in 2013 on home soil.
“It’s been long since we won it. This is our time to win it. We need to be champions of the COSAFA Cup,” he said.
Musakanya has scored six times for Arrows this season.
“It’s all about team work. The National Team has best players in the league. We need to focus; I need to encourage the guys that we need to work extra hard so that we can win this year’s COSAFA Cup,” he said.
