Zesco United midfielder Justin Zulu is today expected to miss Zambia’s plate semifinal clash against Ghana at the Cosafa Cup in South Africa due to injury.
Zambia take on Ghana at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium looking to redeem themselves after they were booted out of the main competition by Namibia on Sunday.
Zulu sustained an ankle injury in the game against Namibia before coach Honour Janza was forced to replace him.
He missed training on Monday and Tuesday though the extent of his injury is yet to be ascertained.
“Midfielder Justin Zulu did not train with his friends for the second day running,” FAZ said in a statement on Tuesday.
Zulu’s injury will be a big blow to Zesco as he is a dependable player at the Ndola club.
Meanwhile, Cosafa Cup is not a FIFA recognised tournament.
