Zambia vice captain Nathan Sinkala will miss Friday’s Cosafa cup Plate final to get married.
Coach Honour Janza on Thursday gave Sinkala permission to leave camp to attend to his nuptials.
“Chipolopolo Vice Captain, Nathan Sinkala has been excused from national duty to allow him attend to family matters and will miss tomorrow’s COSAFA plate final against Malawi,” FAZ spokesperson said in a statement.
“Sinkala will this weekend have a traditional marriage blessing ceremony and as such has been excused from camp.”
Sinkala scored Zambia’s third goal in Wednesday’s Plate semifinal that Chipolopolo won 3-0.
The TP Mazembe midfielder who made his belated Cosafa Cup tournament debut on Wednesday scored his goal in the 41st minute before he was replaced by Paul Katema of Kabwe Warriors in the 85th minute.
