STRIKER Ronald ‘Sate Sate’ Kampamba is eyeing a place in the Chipolopolo squad after helping the developmental squad to a third place finish at the 2013 CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup in Kenya.

Kampamba said in an interview that he was confident of winning a place in the Chipolopolo after what he considered a good outing in Kenya where he scored three goals as Zambia beat Tanzania on post match penalties to claim bronze.

The 2013 MTN-FAZ Premier League top scorer said he was confident Chipolopolo coach would consider him for future national team assignments because he wants to score more goals and help the country win.

Kampamba, whose prolific form, scoring 18 goals helped Nkana win a 12th record league title, is yet to win hearts of many but insisted that he was confident the Chipolopolo coach would give him more opportunities to prove his worth.

“The tournament was okay, I am happy with the way I performed. I am confident the coach will consider me in other games. I am looking forward to playing for the national team and score more goals,” he said.

And on arrival from Kenya on Friday, Chipolopolo coach Patrice Beaumelle demanded more from Kampamba and Nkana team-mate Festus Mbewe.

Kampamba scored Zambia’s opening goal against Tanzania in the group stage before finding the net against Burundi in the semi finals and was back to haunt the Kilimanjaro Stars in the third place play-off.

Prior to his three goals at CECAFA Cup, Kampamba had scored just once for Zambia in November 2011 in a friendly win away in India against a Goa Select side.

“I saw a good personality and a lot improvement from Festus and Kampamba. They still have to work to do but they are young,” Beaumelle said.
