Zambia face Namibia

Sports Zambia face Namibia

Zambia face Namibia looking to maintain one of the few unbeaten records they still enjoy in African football.

The friendly to be played in Windhoek on Saturday is part of Zambia’s 2014 CHAN qualifier and 2013 Cosafa Cup build-up games and coach Herve Renard is taking a home-based team to face Namibia in the two sides 10th ever meeting.

Zambia’s record against Namibia currently stands at five wins and four draws.

Renard’s personal record with Zambia against Namibia is at one win in the 2009 Cosafa Cup quarterfinal after beating the Brave warriors 1-0 and a 0-0 draw in a pre-2010 Africa Cup friendly played in Johannesburg.

Away from the records, the match will be a big test for some players knocking on the door for next months’ 2014 World Cup Group D qualifiers against Lesotho and Sudan.

Firstly, Green Buffaloes goalkeeper Davy Kaumbwa is battling Rabson Muchelenganga to replace suspended Kennedy Mweene for the June 8 Group D qualifier against Lesotho in Ndola.

In defence, Zesco United midfielder Khondwani Mtonga could find himself following Stopilla Sunzu’s footsteps.

Renard converted Mtonga into a defender in the 2-0 win over Zimbabwe on April 28 after doing the same for Sunzu in 2010.

Sunzu will miss the Lesotho qualifier after undergoing knee surgery on May 10 in Lusaka.

And in attack, Nchanga Rangers’ Bonwell Mwape and Konkola Blades striker Brian Chewe will also be hoping to make impact after impressing against Zimbabwe.

  1. “Sunzu will miss the Lesotho and Sunzu qualifiers after undergoing knee surgery on May 10 in Lusaka”.
    What kind of confusion is that.

  2. Well written article BaLT. Apart from the “Sunzu” typo in place of “Sudan” the article has some degree of detailed information. Way to go!

  3. Lesotho and Sunzu qualifier. Imwe ba LT take time when editing. Do you want to be booed just like this Guy from Plot 1.
    Just kidding. I know it was a slip of the editor tefyo!

  4. And the FAZ president is here in London enjoying the VIP treatment at the UEFA Finals at Wembley….when it comes to pay players they give them $20 soft drink allowances as pay. The FAZ self serving empty suits are busy organising cheap friendlies like this one with low ranking Nambia so they can continue living their lavish lifestyles at our expense.
    Wake up people!!
