Kamuzu Barracks Coach Billy Phambala has pledged to lift the prestigious Carlsberg Cup with the soldiers regardless which opponent they will face in the competition.
Phambala saw his side defeat Chipiku Central Region Football League Premier division outfit Nsundwe United 7-0 at the Civo Stadium in the Capital Lilongwe.
Following the impressive opening game of their Carlsbeg Cup campaign, Phambala believes it is high time history repeats itself.
“I want to make a repeat of what I did in 2013 [winning the cup] by again lifting this year’s Carlsberg Cup. We have started well and our win over Nsundwe is a warning to all other clubs,” said Phambala.
“We are not turning back, we have a good squad and the boys are playing well and I can assure you that we will grab the cup this year,” added Phambala.
Kamuzu Barracks won the 2013 Carlsberg Cup after beating Moyale Barracks 1-0 at the Mzuzu Stadium.
Harvey Nkacha scored the only goal of the match in the 81st minute beating Macdonard Harawa who was manning the posts.
