Zambia Arrive In Khartoum

Sports Zambia Arrive In Khartoum

Zambia landed in Khartoum under the cover of darkness on Thursday ahead of Saturday’s battle against Sudan.

The African champions landed in Sudan at 20:30 hours after a 30 minute delay on a Kenya airways flight from Nairobi.

Zambia are lodged at Hotel Corinthians just 20 minutes walk from Al Hilal hotel where Saturdays 2014 world Cup Group D match will be played.

Meanwhile, midfielder Joseph Sitali says he will not despair in his bid to earn a place in the national team after being dropped from the Chipolopolo Squad that is in Sudan for Saturday’s 2014 World Cup qualifier.

Sitali said he will continue working hard to secure a place in the in the national team.

The Power Dynamos skipper said he respects coach Herve Renard’s decision to drop him.

“As a player I think I did my best and I will continue working hard,” he said.

” The coach talked to me about his decision and encouraged me to work hard,” Sitali added

Sitali was one of two players Renard dropped for the Sudan clash together with defender Aaron Katebe of Zimbabwean club Hwange.


  1. Joseph Musonda should have been ample time to recover, he has had very little if any game time since Afcon 2012. Time to try out new players. All the best to the players!

  2. If at all we maintain the same spirit same prayers will make it zambians let’s take every game Serious

  3. @Tubulu- Im also wondering about the game being played at a hotel. Awe mule chekin’ga ifyo mulelemba pls. U confuse us so much ama online news reporters

  4. I like your maturity Joseph. It takes a day my boy. SATA was dropped and duped by MMD several times but persisted. Today MMD is all over dancing to SATA music even when umwine aleyendela.

  5. Ghana has spelt Lesotho so Zambia should watch out.Winning the Afcon is far different from qualifying for the World Cup.Watch out for their new revelation Christian Atsu.

  6. Poor reportn….The match will finally b played @ Al Hilal Hotel…Mmmm Sudan must b sophisticated a stadium withn a hotel…tefintu!

  7. But zambians,u mean u cant name a stadium like that.in america there is ceasar’palace a sports arena & and in norway there is a field called the lounge, elsewhere we hav the rose bowl.times r changing

  8. #6 why do u have to bring in politics into sport? We now all know Sata was a lying SOB and painful joke he has truly become! So for you as long as it is Bemba, it is right! Tell me, what electoral promise has this SataN of yours proved to justify his persistence to ascend to power? He wanted it as a means and an end to itself, apart from Bembanizing Zambia and ‘tukuwa twa bwaanganu bo busile’, he seems to be at sea stirring up trouble all over. Ubungangwa no buchende pa musana sure uleke chikopo iwe!

  9. Ghana could have even scored 20 zero against Lesotho but they can only collect 3 points… So we also must collect 3 points in Khartoum….then wait for them at the Mwanawasa Stadium. It’s getting exciting!

  10. Zambia arrive in Kartoum ????
    Venue for the big match >
    Al Hilal hotel . 30min delay Kenya Airways > Where is our pride?? Shame on you using a foreign airline.. Are you Harambe stars??? Where is Zambia Airways???
