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.
Zescoâ€™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 teamâ€™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, itâ€™s â€˜One Zambia, One Nationâ€™.
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.
