Green Eagles striker Kennedy Musonda says his side is ready to face Angolan side Desportivo de 1Agosto in the CAF Champions League pre-group stage next month.

Eagles advanced to the first round last Saturday after eliminating South African side Orlando Pirates via a 2-1 aggregate victory in the preliminaries.

‘I feel very good and very excited. We believed in ourselves that was the key thing,’ Musonda said.

Eagles will host the Angolans on September 14 in Lusaka before travelling to Luanda on September 24 to decide who goes through to the league phase of the competition.

‘We will just keep on pushing from where we have left off. We are very ready for any team,’ he said.

‘At least we have gained the experience from the CECAFA Cup to playing a big team like Orlando, so we are ready for any team,’ Musonda added.

And the striker said he is not under pressure to score in the Champions League.

‘The most important thing is helping the team win,’ Musonda said.

He is yet to score in the competition.

  1. Even Tapson has not scored, don’t blame strikers. Eagles is a team of defenders.
    And thats why they win league with less than 30 goals. Look Nsautu he used to play defensive midfield in Chipolopolo, but now he playing ku 11.
    Chiyangi is special coach.
