Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) president Andrew Kamanga believes Chipolopolo can still qualify for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.

“If we beat Guinea Bissau then we will have a very good chance of qualifying because at the moment they are one point ahead of us. So far, I think the team has done very well because we have not lost in the two matches we have played against Congo,” Kamanga told the FAZ website.

Chipolopolo were held to a 1-1 draw by Congo-Brazzaville at home in Ndola last week Wednesday, and picked up a point away in Brazzaville over the weekend.

Zambia are seating on six points having played four game. They are tied with second placed Congo-Brazzaville.

“We now have to go back to the drawing board and start preparing for Guinea Bissau. The coach will give us a programme to adequately prepare for the Guinea Bissau game. For now, that will be our focus.”
