PREVIEW: Zambia fight Flames for 5th place

Sports PREVIEW: Zambia fight Flames for 5th place

Zambia conclude their 2015 Cosafa Cup campaign with a battle for 5th and 6th when they face Malawi in the Plate final on Friday at Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg.

Honour Janza’s men face Malawi for the second time this month before heading back home after relinquishing their Cosafa crown last Sunday following a 5-4 post-match penalty quarterfinal defeat to 215 finalists Namibia.

Zambia beat Malawi 2-0 in the two sides first meeting in a friendly match played on March 29 at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka.

“It won’t be easy playing Malawi for the second time in a month. They have studied us and we have studied them,” Janza said.

But Janza will be hoping for another convincing showing from his boys after Wednesday’s 3-0 demolition of Ghana in the Plate semifinal at the same venue.

However, scorer of the third goal in that match midfielder Nathan Sinkala will not be part of the team.

The Zambian vice captain has been excused from duty so that he may attend to his wedding this weekend in Lusaka.

Zesco United midfielder Justin Zulu is also a doubt and could be replaced by Nkana’s Donashano Malama who was benched in the win over Ghana.
