Zambia coach Beston Chambeshi concedes injured defenders Ziyo Tembo and Donashano Malama are doubts for this Sunday’s penultimate friendly date Morocco in Marrakech.
Malama and Ziyo also sat out last Sunday’s 2-1 friendly loss against Cameroon in Madrid, Spain.
Ziyo has an ankle injury while Malawi has a back problem and the duo has been restricted to light training after sustaining the injuries during the current eleven –day friendly tour camp in Morocco.
Chambeshi said he may again have to fall back again on the Zambia Under32 defensive trio of Moses Nyondo , Kebson Kamanga and Shemmy Mayembe after they started against Cameroon.
“You know, these are our key players our in defence and if you miss players like this, it is a worry,” Chambeshi said.
“But we have all the confidence in the young boys who are here Nyondo, Shemmy and Kebson.
“I think they are gelling well in the team and doing fine. We hope and trust they can withstand the pressure against Morocco but we have confidence in them.”
