Sven Starts Mozambique Preps

Chipolopolo coach Sven Vandenbroeck has commenced preparations for the November 17 Africa Cup of Nations crunch match against Mozambique, with 25 local players assembling in Lusaka.

Vandenbroeck led the 23 infield players through the paces this morning at the Futsal Arena with an interesting blend of call ups.

The technical bench led the lads through an intense physical session while the goalkeepers trained elsewhere under the watch of goalkeeper coach Stephen Mwansa.

Vandenbroeck will run the local players through the mill before naming his final squad at the end of the week when camp shifts to South Africa.

The foreign based players will join directly in South Africa where the team will be holed up before heading to Maputo for the Group K Africa Cup of Nations tie.

Some members of 2017 Under-20 Africa Cup winning side players have been included in the local camp among them Boyd Musonda, Shemmy Mayembe while current U20 campaigners in Francisco Mwepu and Benson Kolala have also been included signalling that the coach has his eye across all national teams.

    Its good that u have started earlier. U are the best coach but please take note of mistakes within the first half and tell players to score not just to play well while not scoring. Substitute should be within in 60 mins please and don’t take much time to change mulenga for patson if he will be on bench is a good player. And why can’t we see Brian Mwila and Emmanuel mbola u can forgive him.

    Some people are Naturally Dull. Looking at your comments and the News Faz totally wrong. Coach said he has summoned local players to prepare the game before traveling to Joberg then international players will connect DIRECT to Joberg… Simple here comes a person what about Fashion. S. Mwepu. Lubambo. M-)sure sure do you read before you comment?

  22. Mozelizer
