Zambia going for a win - Renard



Coach Herve Renard says Zambia will go for an outright win when his reigning kings of African football take on the hosts of the 2013 Orange Africa Cup of Nations finals in the Nelson Mandela Challenge on Wednesday.

Zambia takes on South Africa at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday night with the game scheduled to kick off at 8pm CAT (SA, GMt+2), live on SS HD4 and SS4 from 7:30pm.

Looking ahead to the game, Renard reckons that the match is significant for a number of reasons.

“I expect the game against South Africa in Johannesburg to be a very interesting. It will be a good game in a fantastic stadium. For us, we are going there for a win. We want to win this Mandela Challenge and we are looking forward to it. It’s a platform for us to continue carrying forward the pride of our great country Zambia,” Renard said in an interview with fazfootball.com.

He added: “We also have a good opportunity to start our preparations for the Africa Cup. Our target for now is to be ready for the 21st of January 2013 and the work starts now. We are starting to the work on Wednesday and when January 21 comes, we will be ready.”

It is the second time Zambia and South Africa clash in the Mandela Challenge match. The first meeting in 1994 ended 2-1 in favour of Bafana Bafana.

The last time the two teams met in a competition match in the 2008 Nations Cup qualifier which Zambia won 3-0 in Cape Town, courtesy of a hat trick from 2012 African Footballer of the Year contender Chris Katongo.

The last friendly meeting was in Pretoria in 2009 at the Atteridgeville Super Stadium which South Africa won 1-0.
