 Lubambo digests Chipolopolo’s failed World Cup bid

By Mercy Chewe
Chipolopolo winger Lubambo Musonda says national team players gave their best against Equatorial Guinea despite drawing 1-1 at home in Lusaka  in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

The draw on Sunday evening ended Zambia’s World Cup dream with two matches left in Group B.

“On our side, I think it is a disappointing result. We wanted maximum points at home and we played our lungs out. We tried, but we wasted a lot of chances,” Musonda said.

“Apart from that all the players gave their best, they really had the heart   to win today and I am sure going forward. There will be a lot of competition in the team and there will be very good results,” he said.

Musonda lamented Zambia’s failed World Cup bid.

“I cannot really say it is really a problem you know how football is, it is a process like we had the other players who were here and they are now also other young players and they are just coming up and also trying to give their best and to play for the national team we are getting somewhere I think.”

“We will definitely get there if we maintain the same good work patience and a lot of hard work,” Musonda added.

In the World Cup race, Zambia is remaining with a home match against Mauritania and an away encounter in Tunisia.
