Sports Zambia & Nigeria respect each other-Kalaba

Zambia captain Rainford Kalaba says their is an element of mutual respect between Chipolopolo and Nigeria.

The two sides clash this Sunday at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola in their opening Group B game in the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

“We have respect for them but football is played on the pitch,” Kalaba said.

“They were once champions and we were once champions. The 90 minutes will decide the outcome of the game.”

And, defender Stopilla Sunzu has joined the Zambia training camp in Ndola.

The defender from French Ligue 1 club Lille arrived in Ndola on Tuesday and was part of Wednesday training.

Sunzu, who was on the bench for Lille in Saturday’s 1-0 home win over Nancy, completes the roll call of nine foreign-based players summoned by Wedson Nyirenda for Sunday’s clash.

Meanwhile, Kickoff of the match will be early at 14h30 instead of the traditional 15h00 kickoff.
