Polokwane City’s South Africa-born goalkeeper has praised Khama Billiat after his Zambian debut against Zimbabwe.
Khama Billiat scored twice past Mwenya Chibwe as Chipolopolo lost 2-1 to Zimbabwe in Tuesday’s AFCON 2021 Qualifier.
"It felt so good representing Zambia in Zambia, and getting the love it was just amazing,” Chibwe told Kick Off.
“Oh yes I had the best game of my life and... he [Billiat] not really spoiled it for me. I really wanted to win at home but we lost, that's the only disappointment I have, but performance-wise I told myself I have to do my best to win people's hearts here in Zambia.”
Asked to share his view of Billiat’s quality and the striker’s ability to bring success to Amakhosi, Chibwe said the 29-year-old has it all.
"With no doubt... unless injuries. He was on fire, what a player. He made a difference in the Zimbabwe team. Every time the ball went to him [you knew] something is going to happen... making a save or my defenders block or it's a corner.”
"The first goal it was a corner and Billiat got a head to it. The second one Musona dribbled my defenders then passed to Billiat, he was left alone in the box then punished,” Chibwe added.
Chiefs will be in action against Maritzburg United on Sunday in a Telkom Knockout semi-final game.
