Debut Call Elates Lungu
Kitwe United striker Edward Lungu says he is delighted with his debut call-up to the senior national team.
Lungu, who stars for Eden University National Division One bound Kitwe has been in scintillating form for his club enough to catch the eye of national team coach Milutin Sredojevic.
The ‘Chingalika’ forward is part of the 36-member squad preparing for the three international friendly matches against Senegal, Benin and Sudan during the June FIFA window.
Zambia will commence its West African tour with a date against the Teranga Lions of Senegal on June 5 in Thies before travelling to Cotonou for a match against the Squirrels of Benin on June 8 before and wind up with a clash with the Crocodiles of Sudan in Omdurman three days later.
“I feel nice because hard work pays. I have been working hard since the league started and I am still working hard for the years to come,” Lungu said.
Lungu’s future with Kitwe United is uncertain after the Copperbelt based club became the first team to be relegated to the Eden University National Division One from the 2020/201 FAZ/MTN Super League.
“I am having a lot of opportunities to (still) play in the Super League, what is just needed is to continue working hard and God will say something next season,” said the former National Assembly striker.
The Chipolopolo trained from Nkoloma Stadium this morning with two foreign based players joining camp.
Poland based Lubambo Musonda and Kings Kangwa of Russian outfit Arsenal Tula are part of the squad.
