Wedson set for Zimbabwe test

Sports Wedson set for Zimbabwe test

Wedson Nyirenda’s seeks his first win in charge of Zambia when his team plays Zimbabwe in a friendly away at the National Stadium in Harare on Saturday.

Zimbabwe will host Zambia in the first of two friendly matches Chipolopolo will play on their way to face Cameroon on November 12 in a 2018 FIFA World Cup Group B qualifier.

The second friendly will be against Uganda on November 8 in Kampala.

Nyirenda will be looking for a confidence boosting result after beginning his tenure with a 2-1 defeat at home against Nigeria on October 9 in an opening Group B qualifying match.

But Nyirenda will only field his 23 home-based call-ups for the Zimbabwe match.

From that match, 13 players will be picked to travel to Kampala to join the ten overseas call-ups for the friendly against The Cranes and thereafter to Limbe to face Cameroon four days later.

The spotlight in Saturday’s match will be on striker Patson Daka.

The teenage striker will be battling to make the cut following his recent flourishing form at club level for Power Dynamos since August where he has scored 12 competitive goals, eight more than he did between 2014 and July, 2015.
