Sports Sautu ruled out of 2015 All-Africa Games qualifier

Midfielder Spencer Sautu has been ruled out of Zambia Under-23 teams’ 2015 All-Africa Games final round, last leg qualifier against Nigeria on April 11 in Lusaka.

The Green Eagles and senior Chipolopolo midfielder has a leg injury and is expected to be out of action for at least four weeks.

Coach Fighton Simukonda said Sautu’s absence is a big blow.

“Spencer will not be part of the Nigeria game, he has been ruled out due to an injury and is currently in a Plaster of Paris,”Simukonda said.

“We will definitely miss the services of Spencer, he is a key player in our team but we have no option but to use available player.”

Meanwhile,Nigeria and Zambia are scoreless from the first leg played on March 22 in Abuja in a match Sautu played.

Winner next weekend will qualify to the 2015 All-Africa Games to be hosted by Congo-Brazzaville from September 4-19.
