BATA – Zambia national team captain and striker Christopher Katongo has said this team will go far because of their unity.
Herve Renard’s side has already produced one of the early shock results at the Africa Cup after beating Group A favourites Senegal 2-1 on Saturday at the Estadio de Bata in Equatorial Guinea.
Katongo said in an interview in Bata that the Zambia team considered itself as equal.
“There is unity in the team, it doesn’t matter what player,” Katongo said.
“Every player is pushing the other regardless and there is nothing like I am better than this one.”
The striker from Henan Jienye in China, said the players fully respected and backed Renard’s ambitions for the team at this Africa Cup.
“Whether you are on the bench or you are not playing we treat ourselves as equals,” Katongo said.
“It’s just the coach wants 11 players to start. If the coach can play 23 players he could do it.”
