Chipolopolo Target Namibia Scalp

The Chipolopolo boys will aim to put their Cameroon 2019 Africa Cup of Nations campaign back on track with a potentially explosive match against Namibia in Windhoek this afternoon.

There is a positive vibe around the team with new coach Sven Vandenbroek having picked a universally acceptable squad that is a blend of youth and experience.

Vandenbroek has included four 2012 Africa Cup of Nations winners in Rainford Kalaba, Kennedy Mweene, Stoppilla Sunzu and Nathan Sinkala with the finer of the Bola na Lesa all-conquering U20 squad also contributing reigning African Young Player of the Year Patson Daka, Enock ‘Computer’ Mwepu, Solomon Sakala and Fashion Sakala.

There has been also a show of confidence in local stars that are lighting the local league like Bruce Musakanya, Spencer Sautu, Gideon Sichone, Lawrence Chungu among others while red hot Augustine Mulenga and Justin Shonga are part of the cast.

Vandenbroek will have an array of stars to pick from his squad and will also be giving Zambians an insight into his philosophy.

Long serving goalie Kennedy Mweene is expected to maintain his spot between the sticks while a central defence partnership of Sunzu and Kabaso Chongo looks likely with Lawrence Chungu taking up the leftback spot while versatile SuperSport star Gampani Lungu may be handed the right back position as he has done for his club as a stop gap measure.

In midfield Nathan Sinkala is expected to take up the holding role alongside the mercurial Mwepu.

Upfront Patson Daka will be the point man while Justin Shonga and Augustine Mulenga could be fitted upfront depending on the coach’s formation.

Kalaba could be deployed on the right flank with the possibility of Lubambo Musonda taking up the left wing.

The squad will have the duty of converting the promise on paper into reality.

The match kicks off at 16:00 hours and will be beamed live on SuperSport 7.

Zambia and Namibia are looking for their first points after having lost their opening matches in Group K.

    Thats why I didn’t comment I knew that the outcome will be pathetic and leaves your mind rattled.there is really some thing very sinister about our team am sure maybe the clergy can give us a very satisfying answer. Food for thought.
