Zambia National Soccer Team trainer Dario Bonetti says his Chipolopolo will have the mentality of playing FIFA world champions when Zambia commences her campaign for the 2012 Nations Cup finals.
Bonetti said it was important to collect maximum points adding that the Chipolopolo were not looking beyond Saturday but solely focused on Comoros so that Zambia’s campaign for the 2012 Gabon/Equatorial Guinea finals progressed well.
The Chipolopolo host Comoros in a Group 3 clash in Lusaka on Saturday.
Match Day 1: Zambia vs. Comoros
Date: 4 September 2010
Bonetti told a media briefing after a morning work-out at the Woodlands stadium that he was happy with his players
He said he expected every play to work hard and take pride in wearing the national colours.
Said Bonetti: “The game at the weekend is very important for us and we will work hard to ensure that we are in good shape for the game at the weekend. We have enough time to work together…we are professional and with hard work we should do well.”
“When we play Comoros, I want my players to have good mentality. They have to play as if they are playing the best team in the world. We will play as if we are playing Brazil. That is good for the game,” the Chipolopolo trainer said.
He called for support for the team.
