Zambia FA chief Bwalya confident of retaining AFCON title

Posted On Friday, 21st December 2012

Kalusha Bwalya is confident 2013 will be the year for Zambian football

Zambia FA President Kalusha Bwalya is confident the Chipolopolo will retain their crown at next year’s Africa Cup of Nations.

The Zambians swept three awards the GLO-CAF gala on Thursday night in Accra including National Team of the Year with Renard Herve been named as  Coach of the Year for guiding the team to clinch the continental showpiece in Gabon and Equitorial Guinea.

The former African Footballer of the Year believes they have enough quality to retain their crown.

“It’s only a year. There players are there and the mentality to win has not lost on us,” Bwalya said

“We are not going to underrate any team because the likes of Cote D’voire, Nigeria and Ghana are always going to be favourites.

“But we have team and that I believe will do the trick for us again.

“We respect every team but we’re also not going to be pushovers. We’re all going there for the title.”

Zambia defied the bookmakers to clinch their first African title after beating Cote D’voire in a nail-biting penalty sh0ot-out.

    Our FA boss the “great Kalu” has spoken. He said the same before AFCON 2012 win but many pipo did not believe him. Even now many will not believe him but the truth is Zambia is not a pushover in SA.

  4. kwame pito says:

    Kalusha you are mistaken. nobody is underrating your country now. If zambia wins this Afcon or even makes it to the finals then we will count you as a powerhouse who have come to stay. BUT IF YOU FAIL LIKE I PERSONALLY EXPECT YOU TO THEN THE LUCK THEORY HAS BEEN CONFIRMED…

    by the way Akwasi Appiah please start working on Blackstars first eleven team understanding.

  5. Maxwell Johnson says:

    How can you retain the AFCON title when you cant even beat average teams like Sudan, Namibia & Uganda? Your team cant even score more than a goal in games so how the hell can you retain your crown.

    I don’t see how you can beat the likes of Naija & Burkina Faso in the group stage, your luck will run out soon.
