President Edgar Lungu has challenged the National Football team to beat Kenya in this Sunday’s AFCON qualifier and make the country proud.
President Lungu who visited the team at the Heroes National Stadium says victory for the Chipolopolo Will make the country happy.
He says the team should shame critics by winning the game just like he did when he won the Presidential election.
The President who will be visiting Kenya next week says he wants to be greeted with good news when he arrives in that country.
He says the team should die a little for the country saying football fans will travel to cheer them at a great cost.
And President Lungu says the Football Association of Zambia should work with the Ministry of sport to ensure a new Bus is bought for the national football team.
President Lungu was presented with a Chipolopolo replica jersey and a ball.
The team leaves for Nairobi in their second game of the AFCON qualifier on Friday.
