JONATHAN KALIMINA, who scored a hat-trick in Zambia’s 4-2 win over Senegal, has emphasized the importance of the squad playing together if they want to be successful at the 2023 AFCON competition.
Speaking after yesterday’s game, KALIMINA noted that the win is a significant boost for the team as it strives to reach the World Cup at all costs.
KALIMINA has emphasized the need for the team to play as a unit if they are to succeed against Nigeria in their opening Group B match at the AFCON on Sunday.
The team’s captain, AARON MBEMBA, claims that the players now feel more confident going into the AFCON as a result of their victory over Senegal.
Senegal was not a pushover squad, according to team coach IAN BAKALA, and the outcome demonstrates the team’s progress.
