Chisamba Injured As Nigeria Looms
Zambia wrapped up the final day of their public practice session before Fridays showdown against Nigeria with news of an injury blow.
Chisamba Lungu is likely to miss Zambia’s penultimate Group C game against Nigeria due to a left foot injury he sustained after a crude tackle on him from suspended Ethiopia goalkeeper Bushura Tasew.
The Russian-based midfielder from FC Ural who limped out of Mbombela Stadium on Monday night sat out training on Wednesday.
Zambia team doctor Joseph Kabungo said Chisamba would undergo a late fitness test on Thursday.
And striker Collins Mbesuma pulled out of training in the last 20 minutes but Kabungo said it was nothing serious and that the striker was ok.
Zambia will hold their final training session on Thursday in camera at Ka Nyamazane Stadium.
