Nkana FC coach Beston Chambeshi has vowed that their mission is to end North African’s dominance over Zambian teams.
Nkana will meet Algeria’s CR Belouizdad in the 2018 CAF Confederation Cup first round next month.
The Zambian outfit will head to the north on the weekend of March 6-7 for the first leg before hosting them at Kitwe 10 days later.
Belouizdad advanced to the first round following a 2-0 home win over Onze Createurs of Mali on Tuesday whilst Nkana had a bye.
“It’s nice we now know the team we are going to play against. It’s just a matter of psyching our players,” Chambeshi said.
“I know one or two things on how Arabs play. This is football. For sure things must start changing now.
“They will be at home but we will play an open game. We need a goal from that end. Nowadays there is no home ground advantage.”
The winner will advance to the pre-group round in April where they will be drawn against the losers from next month’s pre-group stage of the 2018 CAF Champions League. CLICK HERE TO VISIT AFRICAN FOOTBALL ZAMBIA
