Chintu Kampamba is delighted to be back in the Zambia squad

Zambia defender Chintu Kampamba is delighted over his call-up to play in the crucial 2014 World Cup qualifier against Ghana's Black Stars. 

The 32-year-old Bidvest Wits center-back is among three players recalled by Herve Renard to face the African giants in what is a must-win game for the Chipolopolos.

Sriker Rodgers Kola and midfielder Noah Chivuta along with Chintu have been handed call-ups and he is delighted to be drafted into the team to play in the Southern Africans' most important game in recent years.

“Of course, I am very happy that I am back and this time my target is to play and help the team qualify for the World Cup,” Kampamba said.

Ghana have their own style of play and calibre of players who are individuals. For us, we are more a team than individuals on the pitch,” Kampamba said.

The 2012 AFCON champions are expected in Accra on Wednesday.

    This man is 32 yrs old and some Zambians are bahaving as though they don't have old and useless players in their team. Essien is only 30 and you guys call him an old horse? well, I pray he is featured in the game. Hopefully that will be the end of his interntnal career as he comes up against Atsu, Ayew n Kpb. lol
