Zambia coach George Lwandamina says Chipolopolo are going into this evenings penultimate Group D clash against Uganda hoping to seal their quarterfinal place at the ongoing CAF African Nations Championship (CHAN) in Rwanda.

Chipolopolo leads Group D after one round of matches played on 3 points, two more than Uganda.

Zambia went top of Group D on January 19 after a 1-0 derby win over Zimbabwe while Uganda drew 2-2 with Mali in the late kickoff on the same night.

“We know Uganda are wounded after that draw but we also are eager and have the hunger,” Lwandamina said.

“We will give them respect they deserve but we want to win and qualify.”

Victory will see Zambia secure passage to the last eight with a game to spare against Mali to be played on January 27.

The quarterfinals will be played on January 31 when the winners from Group D will take on the top two finishers from Group C that consists of Nigeria, Tunisia, Niger and Guinea.


  1. And where is your assistant? How many times have these foreign assistants come and gone? Something is wrong somewhere…does this man even has a contract??

  2. Using old players will not help improve the game of football. Those old players who were playing outside the country should not have been included in the squad.

    • You will see more of these old players as there is no development at the grassroots…funds met for that ends up in pockets and the association is merely a gravy train for some top officials.

  3. Comment:Christopher does not have a potatial of playing good football.don’t allow him to play full old.let him give room to the upcoming players.
