Chipolopolo defender Kabaso Chongo says money motivated the national squad to render a superb performance in the AfCON final qualifying match against Namibia on Saturday.

Zambia whitewashed Namibia in the final AFCON qualifying match, beating them 4-1.

Speaking to Goal Diggers following the match, Chongo said money was among the motivating factors for the splendid performance.

He also said the Chipolopolo boys have a bright footballing future ahead.

“As you may know, it’s a good thing to win at home and I have to thank my teammates. We played together as a unit. It’s a great performance because even me I didn’t expect this good thing can happen. We won 4-1, it’s a long time to win 4-1. But today we won, first of all I thank God, because it’s an amazing thing for us. It might take time to happen in future. The fans should just continue supporting us. Because as you know we finished with a positive result, you have to continue supporting us. One of our motivation is, when we are working we are working for money. So when you are here you have to get a positive result, and to get the money.”
