So far i have achieved, the like let me talk about China, whereby i was appointed to officiate the final, which is really amazing. It means a lot to me especially to my Football Association NFA, so it was really a nice achievement for me because i come back with a Gold medal. I hope I will repeat the same" Nghipandulwa said.
He said the opportunity means a lot to him, especially in his career as he is getting international opportunities.
"My aim is to earn a FIFA badge when i reach the minimum age and work my way towards by appearing at FIFA World Cup" he added.
Currently he cannot officiate CAF games, because of the age limit which is 25 and which he hasn't reached yet.
