Zambia midfielder Augustine Mulenga says they are ready for Sudan in this weekend’s 2018 CHAN quarterfinals.

Chipolopolo return to action on Saturday night in Marrakech eying their first penultimate stage appearance at the CHAN since 2009.

Unbeaten Zambia will face Sudan who has also yet to lose at the competition after collecting similar results with two wins and one draw in the preliminary group stage of the tournament Morocco is hosting from January 13 to February 4.

“We are ready for the game, we have done our home work and we know how Sudan are playing and their weakness,” Mulenga said.

“We have to work on those weaknesses so that we can be victorious tomorrow.”

Mulenga is chasing milestone heading into the game on three goals and is two short of Zambia’s all-time CHAN top scorer Given Singuluma’s record that he set in 2009.

Meanwhile, striker Alex Ng’onga is still sidelined with a groin injury he sustained on January 14 in Zambia’s 3-1 win over Uganda but coach Wedson Nyirenda might make an adjustment following Friday Samu’s modest performance during the Power Dynamos players absence.

But midfielder Kondwani Mtonga is back after limping off in the 1-1 draw against Namibia on January 22.

However, defender Simon Silwimba should miss the match after accruing two yellow cards in the group stage.

Winner will in the January 31 semifinals face victor of Sunday’s quarterfinal clash in Tanger between Nigeria and Angola.

  3. The team is good but our technical team will fail to read the game if Sudan changes tactics. Our defence seems to forget the man and all follow the ball opening holes crested by out of position defenders. Score Sudan 2 Zambia 1.

  5. That noise from the drums during our game with Nimibia shud be avoided at all cost today. It disturbed our players. Maybe thats why they did not play well. It was too loud without any proper rhythm. Those fans shud just watch silently and allow the players to concentrate. Even when writing exams at school there is silence around the exam hall.

  6. Kickoff – 21.30! We will carry the day, though Alex would have been a welcome addition…

    Go Chipolopolo go!…

  7. How do u play Mulenga on the wings instead of striker position. Why put Mangani inexperienced to man the back?
