A poor AFCON qualifying campaign for the Chipolopolo of Zambia makes Thursday’s home encounter against defending champions Algeria a must-win affair. Zambia coach Micho Sredojevic is hoping that the massive occasion boosts his players to perform at their highest possible level to gain three points, stating his belief in the team to get the job done and put their ambitions on display. Goal has Sredojevic’s comments in the first link below.
In the second link Zedsoccer takes a deeper look at what the Chipolopolo need to do on the pitch to keep their hopes alive. While Algeria star Riyad Mahrez will not be available for the Fennec Foxes, Group H’s already qualified leaders will be more than a formidable opponent in Lusaka.
