Kamanga has further hailed the Chipolopolo for the 2-1 victory against Comoros in Lusaka.
“On behalf of the FAZ executive committee and the entire football family, I wish to congratulate the Chipolopolo for their victory over the Comoros Islands. We particularly wish to pay tribute to the fans who filled up National Heroes Stadium,” Kamanga said in a media statement released by FAZ spokesperson Sydney Mungala.
“The fans are the lifeblood of the game, and ours on Tuesday night made us proud. There is no doubt that the boys felt the positive energy from the fans throughout the 90 minutes.”
