Zambia international Enock Mwepu believes the current crop of Chipolopolo players has what it takes to challenge for honours at continental level despite failing to qualify for the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations.
The 2012 champions are watching Afcon from the comfort of their homes after a dismal campaign. But Mwepu, who plies his trade for English Premiership side Brighton, is convinced there are positives to carry forward from the previous campaign.
“I think we have a group that there are so many positives we can take given that we failed to qualify in our group. I think we can do something going forward. All we need is just to be united,” the former youth international said.
“And yeah, just try to compete. You know, it’s something that we need to work toward ourselves and believe in ourselves trust ourselves that we can play at that major tournament. So I think in the future, we’ll definitely make it.”
Zambia boasts of top talents like Patson Daka, who turns out for Leicester City in the English Premiership; Fashion Sakala, who plays as a forward for Scottish Premiership club Rangers, Swedish-based Edward Chilufya, and Stopilla Nsuzu of Shijiazhuang Ever Bright.
