Chipolopolo midfielder Klings Kangwa is setting his sights on aiding the team’s success at the upcoming 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.
Following Thursday’s training session at the National Heroes Stadium, Kangwa expressed his singular focus on contributing to the team’s performance.
Zambia finds itself in Group F alongside Congo DR, Morocco, and Tanzania.
Kangwa acknowledges the challenging nature of the group but embraces the opportunity to compete against formidable opponents, emphasizing the excitement and anticipation among the players.
Speaking about coach Avram Grant, Kangwa commended his efforts and stressed the importance of continuous hard work without complacency. He outlined his personal goal of delivering a strong performance to assist the team in achieving success.
Despite the early stage of preparation, Kangwa expressed optimism, recognizing the need for gradual progress. He highlighted the intense competition among players, considering it a positive factor that contributes to the team’s overall strength.
With a nod to the fans’ expectations and the team’s prolonged absence from AFCON, Kangwa affirmed the collective commitment to giving their all and working cohesively.
The upcoming shift to Saudi Arabia and the friendly match against Cameroon on January 9 will further prepare the Chipolopolo Boys for their return to the continental showpiece after seven years.
Zambia commences its AFCON campaign on January 17 against Congo DR, followed by a clash with Tanzania four days later. The final group stage encounter takes place on January 24 against Morocco.
