The Crocodiles travel to face the Chipolopolo this Saturday in the crucial game in Ndola.
Zambia desperately need a win to remain in pole position to pick the sole qualification slot in Group D.
The former African champions lead by just a point going into this weekend’s round of games.
But Lesotho coach Notsi believes his team is ready to cause another major upset which will help Ghana who would have played against Sudan by the time Zambia lines up against Lesotho.
“We are prepared for the game on Saturday and at the same time we are aware that it is going to be a tough encounter. But I believe my boys are physically and mentally ready for the game,” Notsi said.
“Last Sunday we had an international friendly against South Africa which we lost but there are very good attributes that we got from the match.
“Playing against Zambia is a motivation for us smaller upcoming footballing countries and because of that motivation we are here to win.
“We are not here to fulfill this fixture; we are here to compete. If we work hard enough hopefully we will be able to surprise the Chipolopolo.”
