Zambia attacking midfielder Chisamba Lungu is out of this year’s Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup due to injury.
Lungu has suffered a right foot injury that he sustained on Saturday during Zambia’s opening Cecafa Group A against Tanzania that Zambia won 1-0 at the National Stadium in Dar-es-Salaam.
The Russian-based player has his right foot encased in a Plaster of Paris and his healing process is expected to take at least six weeks.
Meanwhile, Zambia coach Dario Bonetti said he is satisfied with his teams win but they could have done better.
“When you play away from home it is difficult,” Bonetti told Tanzanian newspaper The Daily News in a post-match interview on Saturday.
“Tactically we were fine. The difference was the quality of the players. We can do better.”
Zambia face Burundi on Tuesday in their penultimate Group A match in Dar-es-Salaam.
