After netting a brace against Algeria in their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Saturday, Zambian striker Brian Mwila says he is delighted.

Coach Wedson Nyirenda's men are now looking to bag a win in their return leg in Algeria on Tuesday as they want to consolidate their spot in the group.

The win has elevated Chipolpolo to the second spot in Group B with seven points from three matches so far and a win in Algiers will boost their hopes of booking a spot in Russia.


Mwila netted four goals for the national team in the 2017 COSAFA Cup and 2018 Kenya Africa Nations Championship qualifying race.

Speaking after the match, the Platinum Stars striker in the South African Premier Soccer League expressed delight.

“I am delighted to have scored two goals. I was really looking forward to helping my country in a crucial match,” Mwila told the Daily Mail.

The return leg will be staged on Tuesday, September 5 in Algeria.
