Midfielder Enock Mwepu says Chipolopolo are ready to fight Guinea Bissau in Wednesday's 2019 AFCON Group K qualifier at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.
Mwepu said the three points rather than the history between the two sides was more important as Chipolopolo seek their first win in the Group K qualifiers.
This will be Zambia and Guinea Bissau's third meeting after the latter drew 0-0 away in Ndola and won 3-2 in Bissau to subsequently qualify to the 2017 AFCON and eliminate Chipolopolo from the race two years ago.
"I think as a team, we are really ready for the game," Mwepu said.
"We are in a good mood, and everything is going fine so far. We expect a tough game but of course Zambia is a good team also. We won't give up until the final whistle and we aim to win the game and it will be a good game to watch."
And coach Sven Vandenbroeck says his team is injury free and ready for the match.
Chipolopolo are bottom of Group K on 1 point, tied with Namibia, after two games played while Guinea Bissau are level at the top on 4 points with Mozambique heading into match day three of the qualifiers.
Meanwhile, Guinea Bissau will host Zambia this Sunday in their final leg Group K meeting in Bissau.
