Filed under: Sports |

ZESCO United striker Jackson Mwanza says it is a great privilege for hi to represent my country at such an auspicious event as the Africa Cup of Nations.

Speaking to in Johannesburg this morning, the 2014 Super League top scorer said he was happy that his hard work, on and off the pitch, had finally yielded his greatest desire – to be at the Africa Cup finals.

“I must confess that I was very confident that this time around I would be part of the final 23, because throughout the year I kept on improving,” he said.

“The National team coaching bench has really helped me because each time I was called and “dropped” they told me the areas which I needed to improve on,” said the former Zamtel and Afrisports football Club striker.

Mwanza is also thankful to the Zesco technical bench for making him what he is today.

Asked what his secret to success is, Mwanza said, “discipline hard work, serious commitment to my career and belief in my God have been the bedrock of my life.”

His advice to upcoming strikers is that they should embrace patience and hard work if they are to be counted among the best in the country.

Mwanza had a successful soccer season last year,helping his club win the MTN/FAZ Super league and the Barclay’s cup. He has 17 goals to his name.

Mwanza is hoping to show case his skill and come out among the best scorers at the 30th edition of the Africa cup finals.

Yesterday, Chipolopolo coach Honour Janza announced his final 23 players.
