Sports Mwape names Shepolopolo team for 2018 Womens AFCON

Coach Bruce Mwape has revealed that Zambia will compete at the 2018 Africa Womens Championship in Ghana with the aim of qualifying for next year’s FIFA World Cup.

The Women’s Africa Cup will take place between 17 November and 1 December with the best three teams qualifying for FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019.

Mwape said the Shepolopolo are ready for the Africa Cup.

“Going to the Africa Cup, our first target is to qualify for the World Cup,” Mwape said.

Mwape on Tuesday named his final 21-member squad for the Africa Cup.

Absent from the squad is USA based striker Memory Phiri.

“Memory’s passport has expired. Otherwise she was in our plan. She didn’t communicate in good time,” Mwape told journalists.

Meanwhile, Zambia is in Group B at the AFCON alongside Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa.

Lushomo Mweemba (Nwazi), Anita Mulenga (Green Buffaloes) Margaret Belemu (Red Arrows), Martha Tembo (Green Buffaloes), Jacqueline Nkole (Indeni), Agness Musase (Green Buffaloes), Vast Phiri (Zesco), Grace Zulu (Indeni)
