FAZ urges fans not to sleep on the Chipolopolo


AS the Copper Bullets engage the Taifa stars of Tanzania at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium tomorrow, the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has urged the Zambian football community not to lose hope in the boys.

Despite suffering a 2-1 loss to the Atlas Lions of Morocco last Friday, FAZ said the Copper Bullets still have enough athletic arsenal to deliver an exceptional performance.

FAZ president Andrew Kamanga said with five more games to go before the 2026 World Cup campaigns comes to a close, the Chipolopolo Boys still have a lot to fight for.

“The race is still on with five more games to go before the campaign is over. We still have a lot to fight for,” Kamanga said.

“Despite the loss in Agadir, there is a lot of positivity to pick up from the Agadir assignment that gives the team impetus to triumph on home soil.”

He has since urged Zambian fans to maintain consistent support for the national team as they face Tanzania tomorrow.

“We urge the fans to be more positive about the prospects of the team as we have a fairly youthful team that has a lot more to give if we support them.”

Meanwhile the Avram Grant led Chipolopo team is back in training business at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola as they plot to defeat the Taifa stars.

Zambia host Tanzania tomorrow (Tuesday) at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium at 18:00 hours.
