Egypt-based striker Ronald ‘Sate Sate’ Kampamba has joined the Zambia Under-23 camp ahead of their 2015 All-Africa Games qualifying match against Nigeria this weekend.
Fighton Simukonda’s Under-23 team will face Nigeria in a final round, first leg match away in Abuja.
Kampamba arrived on Monday from his Cairo club Wadi Degla and joined the team in training on Tuesday in Lusaka.
““Sate’s arrival has boosted the morale in camp.” Simukonda said.
However, Simukonda will be without Red Arrows winger Bruce Musakanya due to a hamstring injury while Bloemfontein Celtic midfielder Mukuka Mulenga availability for the qualifier is still uncertain.
“We are yet to hear from him (Mukuka),” Simukonda said.
“Otherwise if we don’t hear from him by the end of the day, then he is out of the team.”
Nigeria will host Zambia on March 21 in Abuja while the return leg is scheduled for April 11.
Winner over both legs will qualify to the All-Africa Games to be hosted by Congo-Brazzaville from September 4-19.
