Chipolopolo’s defensive giant, Stophilla Sunzu , has earned himself a well-deserved spot in the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Team of the Week following a stellar performance on Wednesday night’s showdown between Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo that ended in a 1-1 tie.

As the sole 2012 AFCON Champion in the current Zambian squad at the 2023 AFCON Tournament, Sunzu exhibited resilience in the defensive box by clearing DR Congo’s attempts to capitalize on a struggling Zambian team.

The 34-year-old’s crucial save, clearing off the line from Cedric Bakambu when the scoreline was 1-1, prevented the Chipolopolo from falling behind. Sunzu’s composed and consistent defensive display ensured the match concluded with shared honors.

The Jinan Xingzhou central defender now stands shoulder to shoulder with football giants like Egypt’s Mohamed Salah and Morocco’s Romain Saiss, just to name a few, as he secures his place in the prestigious CAF Team of the Week.

With Zambia poised to take on Tanzania in a pivotal clash on January 21, anticipation is high among fans who eagerly await the veteran player’s demonstration of experience and skill during the match.
