Zambia striker Brian Mwila is hoping to carry his prolific form into the 2019 AFCON qualifiers.
The striker, from South African PSL club Platinum Stars, finished the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers on three goals, one more than Patson Daka and Collins Mbesuma who were joint second.
“It is also my dream that my country qualifies to 2019 AFCON after failing to qualify to the World Cup that is the promise to the fans,” Mwila said.
“Hopefully it is my time. It is my time that God has given me and will continue to push to maintain my scoring form.”
And Mwila also lamented his injury absence for the Nigeria game that Zambia lost 1-0 away on October 7 that ended Chipolopolo’s 2018 FIFA World Cup hopes.
The striker is also Chipolopolo’s topscorer in 2017 on 8 goals since making his debut in a 0-0 away draw against Zimbabwe in March and has two goals more than Justin Shonga of Orlando Pirates.
Meanwhile, Mwila and Co are expected to resume their Zambia duties in March when they visit Windhoek to play Namibia in a 2019 AFCON Group K qualifier .
Zambia is bottom of Group K on zero points after losing 1-0 at home to Mozambique in June.
Namibia too is winless after losing by the same scoreline away to Guinea Bissau five months ago.
