Zambia Under-20 international Enock Mwepu is looking forward to participating in the 2017 U20 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals.
The talented winger hit the back of the net as Junior Chipolopolo overcome fellow U20 AFCON finalists South Africa 2-1 on Sunday afternoon.
Junior Chipolopolo, who also beat SA's Amajita in the 2016 U20 COSAFA Cup final, hosted their rivals in Lusaka, Zambia in an international friendly.
“We have prepared adequately for the tournament. We will deliver for mother Zambia,” Mwepu said on SuperSport.com.
“We thank the administrators and coaches for the tremendous work they are putting into the team.
“We thank God for the victory. It was not easy, as you know that South Africa are Zambia’s archrivals,” Mwepu concluded.
Zambia will host this year's U20 AFCON finals between 26 February - 12 March. Junior Chipolopolo and Amajita are in Group A and Group B respectively.
