Zambia is heading to Ghana to camp there this weekend ahead of their October 7 must-win clash against Nigeria.
The West Africa camp comes after plans by FAZ to send the team to Spain fell through due to operational reasons.
“The local player players summoned for duty will leave for Ghana on Sunday and set up base in Accra where foreign based players will join them there,” The FAZ Media stated.
“On Wednesday, the team will head to Nigeria ahead of Saturday’s showdown in Uyo where the match will be staged at Akwa Ibom Stadium.”
But before then, Zambia coach Wedson Nyirenda is on Friday set to announce his foreign-based call-ups for the game at a press briefing at Football House in Lusaka.
Zambia head into their penultimate 2018 FIFA World Cup Group B qualifiers 2nd and three points behind Nigeria.
Cameroon and Algeria are out of the race in 3rd and 4th on 3 and 1 points respectively.
