Chipolopolo Test Match Venue in Francistown

The Chipolopolo boys have had their final training session at the Obed Itani Chilume Stadium in Francistown ahead of tomorrow’s (Monday) Cameroon 2021 Africa Cup of Nations Group H qualifier.

And sports minister Emmanuel Mulenga has urged the boys to finish off the job against the Zebras tomorrow.

Chipolopolo coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic says his charges will build on Thursday’s 2-1 win over the Zebras of Botswana when the two sides clash.

The Chipolopolo jetted into Francistown on Saturday morning and have since settled in their new environs as they plot gunning down the Zebras.

Speaking after the evening training session, Micho says the Chipolopolo boys will treat the Zebras with respect.

“We are playing against one good team that is playing at home. Usually in Africa out factors of the game in relation to the game, the weather influences so much, they are playing at home and we will give them so much respect,” he said.

Micho said he expected the current generation of Chipolopolo boys to rise to the occasion and fight for Africa Cup of Nations qualification.

“This is a huge test of character for the generation of Chipolopolo players. We need to show that our win on Thursday was not a fluke, it was not an accident but a reality of the situation of our team. We need to improve all the departments of our team and overall,” he said.

“It will not be easy; we are playing a team that was just last year in this field played against champions of Africa and accidentally lost from a corner kick goal. They had played and outplayed Algeria in that way and this is exactly the sign that we are playing against a highly competitive team.”

Micho said, “We will give them absolute respect but not over respect, we will self-respect ourselves and we want to look forward to every single player giving the best.”

Meanwhile Mulenga urged the team to remain focused ahead of the Zebras clash.

He said the President Edgar Lungu had taken an interest in the Chipolopolo assignment and allowed him to travel with the team.

FAZ president Andrew Kamanga and General Secretary Adrian Kashala watched the team training.

Deputy High Commissioner to Botswana Goodwell Lungu also watched the team’s training session.

    Football in Zambia Sims to be knew because even those analysts have nothing to offer, but yotam mwanza is my fevorate keep him sometimes he doesn’t comment much due to those talkative chaps, you see to let growth in football we shouldn’t get away with some players like kalaba, sunzu, etc and if the coach is really superb he has worked hard in the midfield and defence but strikers we still need daka, lubambo,kalaba, these three will motivate many to forcase or concertante on the pitch.work hard the coach was called at a late stage mind you rushing isn’t being stable.

  17. Prophet micho🦉🦇🔱🐾🔯🕎✴️🌘👺

    It’s like micho don’t know our Zambian players, how can you leave behind mweene, kalaba, sunzu, cletus, kangwa, kabaso? And pick up the players we don’t know I don’t see this team winning zimbabwe or algeria when they have failed to beat botswana and that goal keeper he used is totally rubbish and useless!

    Young stars are talented but they lack experience, they play with pressure in older for them to have position in a squad. That is the reason why a combination of experienced players and inexperienced players are very important. It will be a shame for Zambia to take a complete decade without qualifying for afcon. Let us win the remaining 2 games
