Zambia coach Aggrey Chiyangi is anticipating a 2019 AFCON Group K qualifier reunion in the quarterfinals at the 2019 COSAFA Cup South Africa will host from May 25 to June 8 in Durban.

Zambia enjoy a preliminary round group stage bye at the COSAFA Cup and await winners from Group B that contains Malawi, Seychelles , Namibia and Mozambique.

Mozambique and Namibia were Zambia’s recent adversaries in their unsuccessful 2019 AFCON Group K qualifiers.

Zambia lost 1-0 home and a way to Mozambique in Group K but draw 1-1 with Namibia in Windhoek but won 4-1 at home in Lusaka.

“It is a very good group because we are only playing in the quarterfinals and I believe amongst the teams that are in that group, I am looking at playing against Mozambique or Namibia,” Chiyangi said.

“Unless otherwise but that is what we anticipate.”

Meanwhile, Zambia kicked off its pre-2019 COSAFA Cup training camp on May 6 with a weekly three-day get-together in Lusaka at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka.

Chiyangi’s team for now comprises of a provisional 24-member home-based team.

However, call-ups from Nkana and Buildcon have been excused from the first week of training due to the two sides league engagement on Wednesday in Kitwe.
