Mwiya Malumo doubt for Zambia U20-Malawi U20


UK-based striker Mwiya Malumo is a doubt for the Zambia Under-20’s friendly against Malawi next week at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka.

Malumo is very likely to miss the July 1 junior international friendly to take care of a transfer obligation following his release by Wigan.

“He is currently searching for a new club so it is quite unlikely that he will make it for the Malawi friendly,” a source familiar with the development said.

But Malumo could be available for the final friendly against South Africa U20 at the same venue on July 7.

Malumo has one goal from two games in the 2019 U20 AFCON qualifiers for Zambia that he score in their second round meeting against Rwanda.

Meanwhile, the two friendly games are Zambia’s build-up fixtures for their 2019 final round qualifier dates against Burundi.

Zambia faces Burundi in the final stage next month at Nkoloma on July 14 and away on July 21 in Bujumbura to decide who goes through to the Niger finals.


    • Boy Mwiya should find a club in USA like Prosper Chiluya. College Soccer players are so respected in USA.

  1. Zambian team is all strikers, no defenders, no goalkeepers.
    Are there no Zambian goalkeepers in diaspora?
    Are you people watching that 19 year old Nigerian keeper at World Cup? Asernal should buy him. Boy is good.
    19 is Under 20, so just you know.
