Letter to the Editor

Let’s rally behind Zesco United

Dear editor,
ZESCO United Football Club has done the country proud.
The team has defied odds to qualify to the CAF Champions League semi-finals.
I am upbeat Zesco will beat Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa when they clash next month.
Zesco’s achievement is proof that with planning anything is possible.
Well done Zesco United for bringing smiles back on the faces of soccer fans following the national team’s exit from the 2017 Gabon Africa Cup of Nations qualifying race.
Now that Zesco are in the semi-finals, there is need for the 14 million Zambians to rally behind the Ndola outfit.
As Zesco will be hosting Sundowns on September 17, I hope Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola will be filled to capacity.
I hope to see a situation where Nkana, Power Dynamos, Mufulira Wanderers, Nchanga Rangers and Zanaco fans will trek to Ndola to cheer Zesco to victory.
After all, it’s ‘One Zambia, One Nation’.
Time is ripe for a Zambian club to conquer the continent and Zesco have the ammunition to do that.
The Champions League winners will get US$1.5 million.
All the best Zesco United.
