Zambia 2012 AFCON Winner Evans Kangwa Backs Current Squad for AFCON Glory
Evans Kangwa, a pivotal forward in Zambia’s historic 2012 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) victory, has thrown his support behind the current national team despite not making the final 27-man squad for the upcoming tournament in Ivory Coast.
In a social media post, the China-based attacker expressed his unwavering confidence in the team’s potential for success. Kangwa declared, “we have a squad capable of delivering positive results,” sending words of encouragement to the players as they prepare for the prestigious continental competition.
Kangwa’s message emphasized the significance of wearing the national badge with pride and honor, urging the players to represent Zambia with dignity on the continental stage. Despite missing out on the final squad, he remains focused on his personal recovery, stating, “for now, full focus is on my recovery so I’m able to give 100% to the nation next time I’m called upon.”
The support from a key figure like Kangwa is expected to boost the morale of the Chipolopolo Boys as they aim to replicate the magic of their 2012 triumph. Under the guidance of coach Avram Grant, Zambia is determined to make a strong impact in the AFCON tournament and vie for their second title in history.
The backing from Kangwa highlights the unity and spirit within Zambian football as they embark on this exciting journey in Ivory Coast.
