The Zambia national soccer team comprising mainly of local players is on Thursday evening set to leave for Saudi Arabia ahead of two friendlies with that country this weekend.

Zambia will face Saudi Arabia in Dammam on Saturday before the two teams clash again on Tuesday.

The squad which regrouped in Lusaka on Monday has been training at the Olympic Youth Development Centre.

The team has been beefed up by Russia based midfielder Chisamba Lungu, Aaron Katebe of Hwange in Zimbabwe and Kampamba Chintu who is un-attached.

Coach Herve Renard has excused Nkana striker Reynold Kampamba who is in Europe attending trials at Swiss side Young Boys and Green Buffaloes keeper Davy Kaumbwa who is scheduled to leave for Ivory Coast to take part in military games.

Renard has since recalled in Napsa Stars keeper Kalililo Kakonje as a replacement for Kaumbwa.
The Frenchman will name the provisional Chipolopolo squad for next year’s Africa Cup after the Saudi Arabia outing.

    • Dr Bill, there is football in Saudi Arabia. These guys are regular qualifiers to the world cup. Just some weeks ago, if I am not mistaken Spain struggled to beat Saudi Arabia 1 nil in a friendly. Or was it the other way round.
