Former Zambian international Kalusha Bwalya is eagerly anticipating the upcoming 2010 World Cup and the 46-year-old has high expectations of the African teams participating in South Africa.
“African teams are in a different and better position than previous tournaments, and I think we are better prepared. We do have the confidence and experience, and I believe our teams now believe they can achieve success at this level,”Bwalya said on fifa.com.
“I think Ghana have been the most consistent team from Africa, and they are favourites at the moment. Ivory Coast are a world class team, and they have some of the top players currently playing for big teams in Europe.
“The South Africa side is not a bad team at all, and I think they showed that during the Confederations Cup. They have some good individual players. A number of other teams have impressed me.
“Cameroon remain a good, solid side. A lot has been said about them, but they are a good side. Nigeria have also been good, even though they have not got the results at times.”
