The two teams will meet on match-day-two of Group F during the weekend of October 9.

Zambia’s other Group F opponent Niger are at number 99.

Group F prospects Tanzania and Mozambique are 106 and 114 respectively on the FIFA rankings ahead of their second round, first leg match in Dar-es-Salaam on Sunday.

The winner of the two-legged, knockout tie will visit Zambia in a Group F opening fixture on September 6.
