Zambian international forward, Patson Daka says there is nothing stopping them from beating Algeria on Saturday in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier.
Chipolopolo are set to face the Desert Warriors in Lusaka this weekend and the Russia-based international reckons they can match the North Africans.
Daka arrived in Lusaka on Tuesday and said receiving a call-up to the Chipolopolo side is a privilege and promised to rise to the occasion.

“I am not new to the senior team but I have been away for some time. Being recalled is a great motivation for me knowing that the coach is aware of my hard work,” said Daka.
“I have friends from the under-20 team and the seniors are also not new to me,” he said.
“They have high-profile players but football is a game of chance and who wants it the most. The fixture looks tight but that is not new to me.
“I have played three games in a week at club level before and I am prepared for both games. I am sure we will make it.”
