Zambia U23 Name Squad For Nigeria Clash

Zambia U23 Name Squad For Nigeria Clash

By SL10 - Apr 10, 2015 09:22 AM

Head Coach of Zambia U23, Fighton Simukonda, on Thursday named his 20-man squad that will face Nigeria U23 in the 2015 All Africa Games final round return match on Sunday

The much talked about game
will be played at the National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka. The sides played out a 0-0 draw in the first leg that took place at the Abuja National Stadium on Sunday 22nd March. 

The Nigerians must get an outright win or a score draw to be guaranteed a place at the All Africa Games in Congo. But another scoreless draw will mean the tie is decided on penalties.

The winner of the fixture will qualify for the Men's Football Tournament of the 11th AAG coming up in Congo-Brazzaville from September 3rd to 18th this year.

Zambia will be favourites to go through in the final round of the qualifiers and they will be aiming to cause an upset against the 1996 Olympic Games Football Champions. 

Mukuka Mulenga is confident Zambia has every chance to qualify at the expense of Nigeria. Larry Bwalya also believes Zambia can do it especially since the young Chipolopolo will have a slight advantage of playing at home.

The match will commence by 3pm Central African Time.

Charges for the game have been pegged at K20 all round except VIP which will cost K200.

Full Zambia Squad: Toaster Nsabata, Kenny Mumba, Chishimba Changala, Boyd Mkandawire, Billy Mutale, Kayawe Kapota, Benard Mapili, Benedict Chepeshi, Salulani Phiri, Shadreck Malambo, John Chingandu, Mukuka Mulenga, Bruce Musakanya, Julius Situmbeko, Larry Bwalya, Patrick Ngoma, Ronald Kampamba,Friday Samu, Moses Phiri, Aubrey Chamulwanda
