CHIPOLOPOLO Wing Wizard Augustine ‘Diego’ Mulenga will miss his South African Premiership club side Amazulu’s first leg tie agiants Malawian giants Nyasa Bullets owing to injury.
Mulenga missed Zambia’s two Qatar qualifying matches owing to an injury he sustained 3weeks ago.
And Amazulu coach Benni McCarthy says he remains optimistic that his team will emerge triumphant.
“If you look at Kaizer Chiefs last season, they were ruthless at home, they were punishing teams at home, so we are going to draw inspiration from that and if we can do exactly the same, we will give ourselves a fighting chance,” McCarthy said in a pre-match presser.
“It is an opportunity for all of us to learn. We want to make our own history and build our own success.
“We are not nervous because a number of players have played for their national teams on the African stage and so we know what is expected. We are excited about that and we believe it is a great opportunity.”
