Zambian forward Lubambo Musonda has described the October FIFA international window outing as a success for the national team.
Chipolopolo won two of their recent three international friendly matches.
Before the wins against Malawi and South Africa, Zambia had last won a match in November 2019.
The Poland-based player feels the matches gave them an indication that the squad is on the right track.
“It was a very good outing we had very good training with the other players we learned so much with each other, the games we played were a very good test for the team. Looking at the team many of these are new players some of them were just coming to the national team for the first time, it was a good thing we had them,” Musonda told ZamFoot.
The matches served as a preparation for the back-to-back 2021 AFCON qualifiers against Botswana next month.
“We started from the first time the locals went into camp that’s where everything started – we train to get better,”
The 25-year-old was full of praise for head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic whom he was working with for the first time.
“You can even see when we are training and how we train he’s always demanding hard work, it’s a good thing we have him here.
“We don’t have to stop we have to continue the work. Whatever we learned from here we have to take it even to the clubs and get working on it until the next time we come to meet,” he said.
Zambia need to collect maximum points in both games against Botswana to put their AFCON qualification journey back on track after losing their opening two games 5-0 against Algeria and 2-1 to Zimbabwe.
