Kamanga: The World Cup Race is Far From Over

Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) President Andrew Kamanga remains hopeful that Zambia can still qualify for the FIFA 2026 World Cup despite the current setbacks.

Zambia is presently 6 points behind Group E leaders Morocco. Tanzania holds the second spot with 6 points, while Morocco leads with 9 points.

“We are saddened by the two losses that the Chipolopolo suffered in Group E FIFA World Cup qualifiers,” Kamanga said.

The Chipolopolo Boys have endured three defeats in the qualifiers, losing to Niger (2-1), Morocco (2-1), and Tanzania (1-0).

“We definitely could have done better. The race is not over yet as we have to fight for every point we can get along the way,” Kamanga stated defiantly.

“We expect the technical bench to review the two matches and ensure that we improve in the upcoming fixtures.”

The World Cup qualifiers will resume in March 2025. Zambia is yet to qualify for a senior World Cup.
