Cape Town - Veteran Zambia striker Collins Mbesuma hopes his form at club level with Mpumalanga Black Aces will be transferred to the national team.

The in-form Mbesuma wants to help his country qualify for 2018 FIFA World Cup before he can even consider retirement.

He has been a revelation in the South African Premiership, topping the goal-scoring charts with 10 goals.

On Friday, Mbesuma scored a brace in a 2-1 come from behind victory over Bidvest Wits to ensure Aces are among the leading pack with 30 points in the league.

"I am back in the Zambian national team and I want to win to go to the World Cup," Mbesuma told Post Zambia.

"My performances have to be the result of hard work and to repay the faith that Aces have in me. I want to win a cup with Aces. I am fighting hard in every match.

"It is also my dream to be a top scorer again in the PSL. I don't want to set a target, but I know the 35 goals I scored all those years back is a far bigger target.

"As a striker, I am paid to score goals and to push myself to always give the team a better chance of winning."
