Zambia will then visit Mozambique during the match week of October 8-16 in both sides penultimate Group K qualifier.

Namibia will visit Zambia in their final Group K match during the week of November 5-13.

The 12 group winners and the best three runners-up will qualify for the 2019 tournament that will be hosted by Cameroon.


  1. i thought Zambia was bidding to Host 2019 AFCON..?? maybe not..Country has 18months or so to get team in order.. but guranteed come 2018 if we even qualify for the tournament will be looking to mweene Isaac chansa mbesuma and katongo to lead the Zambian brigade. missing out on this AFCON is a wake up call but i wonder if the folks in FAZ will wake up.

  2. Both Games Guinea Bissau & Namibia will be GRUDGE matches, of late Namibia thinks is better than Zambia the fact that they eliminated us during the Cosafaca cup does not make them a big team but can cause an upset. Guinea Bissau on the other hand are the reason we did not qualify for the tournament that starts this weekend, though referee was biased we were unfairly eliminated. Like Dennis Liwewe used to say “Lets wait and See!!!” 2019 we will be there, how painful it is to miss out on 2017 AFCON. A few days ago i was watching the 2012 AFCON final,,,, eish Zambia played!!!!

  3. why do they want Southern countries to knock each other out? Every competition Zambia meets Mozambique. And South Africa meets Angola or Namibia
