It is embarrassing that Zambia will not be at AFCON 2019 - Mwape Musonda

It is embarrassing that Zambia will not take part in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt. These are the words of Zambia and Black Leopards striker Mwape Musonda ahead of their final round of qualification against Namibia in Chililabombwe on Saturday evening (18:30). Zambia is bottom of qualifying group K with four points from five encounters while Namibia is at the summit with eight points with a qualifying chance. Musonda says with the quality in the Zambian side they should not be honoring fixtures. Despite Zambia being out of contention for the continental show piece Musonda says he feels honored adding that his call-up came at the right time. The forward is the current top goal scorer in the Absa premiership with 12 goals including a hat-trick against Chippa United two weeks ago. He hopes to translate his domestic form in Chipolopolo colours.
