Chipolopolo to Face Ivory Coast in Abu Dhabi

Zambia will play Ivory Coast on June 19 in Abu Dhabi in the final international friendly match on their international tour of duty.

On Sunday the Chipolopolo boys played African champions Cameroon in an international friendly match at Cerro del Espino Stadium in Madrid.

Zambia lost 2-1, with goals for the Indomitable Lions coming through George Ntep and Joel Taguel for Cameroon while South African Premier League top scorer Mwape Musonda hit the back of the net for Zambia.

Team manager Mwansa Kapyanga confirmed the development saying the game against Gambia that was scheduled for June 12 would not take-off.

Kapyanga who is standing in for Desmond Mngawa who was away with the Cosafa team said the Ivory Coast match would be the final match in a three-game international tour for the Chipolopolo.

The FAZ media team shares some of the images from the international friendly match.

Zambia plays Morocco on June 16 at Grand Stade de Marrakech before concluding its three leg friendly matches with an encounter against the 2015 African champions Ivory Coast in Abu Dhabi on June 19.

  11. triple crowns

    this is nonsense how can a coach make a squad like they are going to face Malawi

  12. George musukula

    Mwandi kaya I was also wondering that’s why we need an expatriate coach not ati chambeshi ba chiyengi ma rubbish



  14. Koyotito

    I watched the highlights of the game. It was a tough one. It’s good that the new boys, especially the previous under 20s have been fully integrated into the senior team. This is the right time for the new Chipolopolo. The older ones have done their job of bringing the Africa Cup. I don’t want them to be exposed to insults if they fail to perform any more.

  15. the chip'$

    ati coach that is why I like the whites to be a coach for Zambia… ifima blacks fyena fyatemwafye ukulwamo fye atase

  28. King Promise

    I dont like zambian football because they only choose their relatives just because they have paid them but use the talent and see the potential of other players, zambia wil never qualify to world cup unless they bring in a whiteman as coach
