Renard Drafts Kasonde

Sports Renard Drafts Kasonde

Power Dynamos defender Francis Kasonde has been drafted into the Zambia national team that is currently camped in Johannesburg ahead of their 2010 World/Africa Cup Group C qualifying match away to Egypt on March 29.

Kasonde has been drafted in to replace Zesco United defender Hichani Himoonde who has been ruled out due to a bout of malaria.

The Power defensive utility player flew out to join Herve Renards team today.

Kasonde featured regularly for Zambia at the just ended inaugural CHAN tournament in Cote d’Ivoire and also captained the team in their final 3rd and 4th playoff match against Senegal that his side won 2-1 to collect bronze.

Meanwhile, Renard is today expecting defender Emmanuel Mbola from Pyunik Yerevan of Armenia together with midfielder Rainford Kalaba of Portuguese 2nd division side Gil Vincente.

Striker Jacob Mulenga of French Ligue 2 side Chateauroux on the other hand has joined the team with Kalaba the only European player now yet to join the team.

Also joining the team today is Fwayo Tembo of Tunisian club Etoile de Sahel.

Still missing is defender Elijah Tana of promoted Angolan club CR Caala who has reportedly yet to received his invitation letter from Faz for the Egypt game.

  1. Good to have the inclusion of Mr. Reliable but still sad to leave out HH,this means HR is likely to play Tana and Chintu at center back with little chance of competition . Kasonde cannot play as a centre back in a high profile game

  2. It’s time we go and tame the phalawo’s in their own backyard. May HR train our chipolopolo at night say from 19hr – 21hr for three days from wednesday, coz it’s like we do not play well during that time, remember what happened with congo DR, we played them at night… the rest is history . The match will be played at night, it will be humid and hot, hence my recommendation.
    To the players, die a little for mother zambia, you can do it. Its eleven against eleven.

    Go Zambia go.

  3. Hope these boys will come back with a good result! If you want to graduate into men, you better tame the so called pharaohs.

  4. The best way is not to put so much trust in these boys even wen we want them to win at least the midfield is strong with sakuwaha
