Fashion Sakala Ruled out of Mozambique Game

Preparations for Sunday’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Mozambique have hit high gear with all but one foreign based player joining the Chipolopolo camp in South Africa.

Among the early arrivals were the Orlando Pirates duo of Justin Shonga and Augustine Mulenga, Emmanuel Banda (Oostende-Belgium), Salulani Phiri (Polokwane City-RSA), Kennedy Mweene (Mamelodi Sundowns-RSA) and Stoppilla Sunzu (FC Metz-France).

The Redbull Salzburg duo of Enock Mwepu and Patson Daka have also arrived leaving only Lubambo Musonda as the final piece in Sven Vandenbroeck’s puzzle.

Vandenbroeck has been forced to leave out Fashion Sakala who is injured after featuring for his club over the weekend.

The team is camped in Johannesburg and will head to Maputo on Friday.

Zambia plays Mozambique on Sunday in a 2019 Cameroon Africa Cup of Nations must win Group K fixture.

    • Samba M. M.

      Comment : Mwace mind your language. what you have written is not what has been reported. By the way have gotten what you have been advised when you are on pitch? Next time when you are with the ball don’t be selfish.

    • Levy

  29. seven aside

    these players we have do not have the heart of scoring but mafulawazi achabe-chabe. they do not even impress the country. u likely leaving us with these foolish sound sounded ahahahahah like hippos in zambezi river. u are there in RSA preparing for the game on sunday, put more effort so that u win the game. U sven, u have get only three strikers, do u think u will leave them when one of them start playing ma rubish without a substiut, people will insult u. Do u know the people of zambia? These people sacked the caoch who won 2012 afcon they dont care whether u are a white man so u need to mind of what u are doing. So take note of what i have stated above . Am there to surport. gogogogo the copper bullet!!!!!!!!!!!

  30. kafwimbi

    Let the better team win on that day . God bless .

  31. O,m

    • Samba Max

      Ng’onga Ng’onga Ng’onga have you improved?

    • Rambo

      Ng’onga U Nothing Ivin A 2years Striker Is Better Than U If U Where Better Than These Strikers U Would Have Been Not Playing Bola Yapa Zed.

    • Walter Brown

      My friend you are indeed a good player I support you and do always wish you are on a permanent national team number but one thing that I think is not working for you is you are lacking self control. You have the stamina and good speed plus energy and also good shots but seriously you need to bring yourself down and no that you play to impress your funs and not yourself alone hence you must make good judgements when aiming at the goal if you are to return to your glorious day when you were a darling to watch. Otherwise you are my best even at the moment.

  34. Za-Mo

    Zambia Power, Power!!! Gogogo Forward Nipatali…


    The team is good but still something is lacking,why is it that the players who plays football for the nation are always leftout of the game?brian mwila,kapumbu,ernest mbewe and ziyo tembo why are these players not called for national duties lyk this one?and if we look clearly back at the history of these players,they’ve performed well for the nation,pliz mr sven try to look for players with hearts of winning and not aba bambi abafwayafye ukutulwalika ama bp,makula yesu kuti twacita shani?let’s look and identify where we mess up including nama supporters let’s give ama boys a big backup otherwise ni go zed go! big shout out to the entire nation.

  36. James katanga

    It’s only God who know let’s jst the grace of God be we us

  37. Samba Max M.

    Comment Truly some good players have been left out. Kambole Lazarus has a fighting spirit when he’s on the pitch. In goal may be the coach would have tried Toasta Nsabata.

  38. Romz

    chisamba lungu must be included next time.
    all best Zambia
