Chipolopolo will face 2019 AFCON finalists Algeria and have two COSAFA derbies in store in their 2021 AFCON qualifiers.

Algeria and Zambia renew acquaintances in Group H 24 months after meeting in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers that Chipolopolo won 3-1 at home in Lusaka and 1-0 away in Constantine.

Also in Group H are trans-Zambezi rivals Botswana and Zimbabwe.

Interestingly, Zambia beat Botswana 1-0 in the 2018 COSAFA Cup finals.

Chipolopolo and The Zebras are also scheduled again to meet in the 2020 CHAN qualifiers away in Francistown on July 26 and in Lusaka on August 3.

Zimbabwe complete Group H and the draw comes a month after Zambia beat the former on post-match penalties in the 2018 COSAFA Cup semifinals in Durban.

Match-Day One and Two will be played during the match week of November 11-19, 2019 while Match Day Three and Four are scheduled for the weekend of August 31 and September 8, 2020.

Match Day Five is scheduled for the weekend of October 5-13, 2020 and Match Day Six during the Weekend of November 9-17, 2020.

    • We will fail to qualify again. Kamanga is bad spirit in zambian football. Algeria and Zimbabwe have momentum currently and we are playing catch up them. Anf thanks to kamanga, Botswana is our size now so thry are not well over anymore.

  2. If we didn’t learn from being absent from AFCON 2019 we deserve COSAFA. I hear it said often that soccer has changed, there are no small teams… why have we remained struggling with Mozambique or Lesotho? With due respect we have no business losing to teams like that. We need to be beating Nigeria, Senegal etc if soccer has changed. We should stop experimenting with coaches. I think the likes of current Benin coach would help. We need a person with tactics and strategy and players that have a heart like Silwimba
