Chipolopolo striker Brian Mwila of South African side Platinum Stars has been ruled out of next Saturday’s Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Nigeria due to injury.

Mwila scored a brace in the 3-1 win over Algeria at Heroes Stadium on September 2 where he sustained the same injury.

Team Doctor George Magwende has told Fazfootball.com that Belgium based Emmanuel Banda had also been ruled out due to injury.

“Brian (Mwila) will not be part of the team as he had a recurrence of the injury he suffered during the Algeria game. It is best to give him time to fully recover,” he said.

Coach Wedson Nyirenda has since replaced Mwila and Banda with Power Dynamos forward Alex Ng’onga and Zesco United’s John Ching’andu.

Chipolopolo leaves for Accra, Ghana on Sunday where they will set up base ahead of their encounter against Nigeria in Uyo.

    Wada whatever you call him must stop being prejudiced and be open to all footballers. Don’t just snub Mazembe footballers because you don’t like them. Some of those local boys you are calling can not be compared to the players you are sidelining don’t become big headed!!

    We needed a more aggressive and balanced striker like Brian displayed against Algeria as Alex & John, with all due respect, will be out of their depth in Oyo! A slight setback for sure but not a train wreck, let’s go boys…

    Wada consult and listen to Zambian people. Your own decisions have been wrong from the time you started football. Remember you had a wrong squad which even created this standing by loosing to Nigeria at home. Then same people you need now told you to include under 20 players and this revived our hope. So listen. Can you take Kalaba, do not let us loose without our options. Also an overweight Mbesuma is better than Ngonga.
