Zambia faces Angola tomorrow in a friendly international at Independence stadium in Lusaka.
The match is part of the two team’s build-up to their respective CHAN qualifying games this Saturday.
Zambia hosts South Africa while Angola, now coached by Herve Renard, are away to Malawi on the same date.
Renard and his Angola team have been in Zambia since Sunday where they have set up a training camp in Lusaka en route to Malawi to face The Flames this weekend whom they are tied at 1-1 from the first leg played in Luanda a fortnight ago.
Zambia on the other hand trail South Africa 1-0 from their first leg match.
Renard has said the result of the warm-up match will not be important but that the objective of the friendly was to help gel the players ahead of both teams’ crucial must-win games this weekend.
“It is not a competition tomorrow, the result is not important but only for the training and we will use a lot of our players and to help get Zambia and Angola to get the qualification (To CHAN) on Saturday,” Renard said.
Renard said he was looking forward to facing his old assistant George Lwandamina who is in charge of the CHAN team with whom he won bronze with at the inaugural tournament in Cote d’Ivoire last year.
“He (Lwandamina) was a very good assistant for me and I think we did a good job and I am happy to see him in charge of the team and am sure he will get qualification (Against South Africa) at Nkoloma stadium,” the Frenchman said.
