Nkana seek players release from CHAN/Cosafa trials


FAZ Super Division leaders Nkana are planning to secure the release of their seven players who are in Lusaka attending national team trials ahead of their trip to Lime Hotspurs on Sunday.

The seven are part of the 162 trialists fighting for places in coach Herve Renard’s squad for the South Africa 2014 CHAN qualifiers and the 2013 Cosafa Cup in July.

Nkana has contributed seven player who include twin strikers Reynold Kampamba and Festus Mbewe who have scored three goals each plus captain and midfielder Sydney Kalume among others.

Nkana chairman John Chiwele said the club will engage FAZ over the possible release of the seven players.

“Our fans should not worry, we will ensure that those players are released for our match,” Chiwele told Radio Icengelo in Kitwe.

Prior to Sunday’s Week Six match against bottom placed Lime at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola, Nkana have 13 points just two points above second placed Konkola Blades.
