Deputy Minister of Sport Stephen Masumba is confident that the Zambia national soccer team will carry the day in tomorrow’s world cup qualifiers’ game against Sudan.
The game will be played at Levy Mwanawasa stadium in Ndola in the Copperbelt province.
Speaking when he toured the 15th anniversary inter-company relay stands in the showground in Lusaka this morning, Masumba said the Chipolopolo boys exhibited exemplary skill in last week’s match against Lesotho.
Masumba said if the boys continue with the same pace, Sudan does not stand a chance to win.
He thanked the clergy for committed themselves to pray for the national team and urging them to continue doing because it was impossible to succeed in anything without God’s intervention.
He said the Chipolopolo boys should not only aim at winning the game against Sudan but at qualifying to the world cup tournament.
Meanwhile, the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) will tomorrow broadcast live on radio and television the 2014 Brazil world cup qualifier match between Zambia and Sudan.
In a statement to ZANIS, ZNBC Public Relations Manager Masuzyo Ndhlovu said although the outside broadcast van that will be used to beam the game live may not be of international standard, it will with government’s support, soon undergo an upgrade of modern digital equipment in preparation for the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) general assembly.
Ndhlovu said the corporation will use its own resources to televise the match on both TV 1 and 2.
