Micho Names 35 for Malawi Friendly

Chipolopolo coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has named 35 local players ahead of the March 12 international friendly match against Malawi in Lusaka.

Micho has roped in Zanaco, Zesco United and Lumwana players that missed out on last week’s camp due to club engagements.

The friendly against Malawi on Youth Day billed for Nkoloma Stadium will be Micho’s first assignment as Chipolopolo coach.

Micho who has combed through the country to select the best available local talent has blended his team with some tested players and new entrants as he hopes to dawn a new era in Zambian football.

The players will enter residential camp on Sunday (March 8) and shape up until they play Malawi on Thursday.

After the Malawi friendly, Micho will trim the team further before heading to Uganda on March 15 in Kampala for the three-national tournament.
