“We are here to fight and try to win this game and qualify,” he said.
“We are looking for a goal, we have never since Cosafa, if we get one goal it will be good for us and that goal will be defended well. Whether early or last minute goal. We are here to play good football and try to find a goal that will bring another goal.”
The Zebras arrived in Lusaka aboard South African Airways and are lodged at the Protea Marriot Hotel.
