Be Forward Wanderers is ready for Sunday’s CAF Champions League clash against As Vita of Democratic of Congo, says captain Joseph Kamwendo.
The 2017 TNM Super League champions arrived in Kinshasa on Friday afternoon ahead of their match against Vita to be staged at the Martyrs Stadium.
Upon arrival at Kinshasa airport,the Nomads were warmly welcome by Officials from the Congolese Football Association.
They had a one hour drive from the airport to Beatrice Hotel.
On their way to the hotel, some Congolese nationals were mocking the Nomads with signs that they will be beaten with not less than 3 goals.
However,the Nomads players looked confidence and not shaken at all as they joked,laughed.
For instance,Kamwendo who had a long stint in DRC having played for TP Mazembe shared a joke with his friends to make the whole bus into laughter.
“Inu Vita inali kale ili ndi azibambo pano ana eni eni. Iwo 11 ife 11 tithana nawo tabwera anangomva kuti tadropa CAF kusiya training auponda tithana nawo.”
After four hours of rest at the magnificient Beatrice Hotel,the team went to the venue of Sunday’s encounter to loosen their muscles.
It was the same thing,as Vita supporters were showing Nomads players 3 or 4 goals.
However, Kamwendo said they had prepared well for the encounter to ensure that they started their continental campaign strongly.
“The team is ready for the game, at least we have done everything in the pre-season and we are looking very okay,” he said.
The 2017 player of the season said his team will fight for a win come Sunday.
“The worst should be a draw because if we can secure victory here or a draw we will just finish them in Lilongwe,” said Kamwendo.
He added that they are not intimidated with supporters in DRC because they are used to that at home when playing against Nyasa Big Bullets.
Wanderers will host Vita on February 25 at the Bingu National Stadium in the return leg.
Kickoff for the match on Sunday is at 16:30 hours
