Chipolopolo head to Botswana


Caretaker coach Aggrey Chiyangi has declared Chipolopolo ready for hosts Botswana in Friday’s opening 2020 CHAN qualifier in Francistown.

After three weeks in camp, Chiyangi’s final 20-member team depart for Botswana today ahead of the CHAN penultimate round, first leg qualifier on July 26.

“The camp has gone on very well and so now the only thing that is remaining is to go and play in Botswana,” Chiyangi said.

The match comes six weeks after the two sides last meeting in the 2019 COSAFA Cup final on June 8 in Durban that Zambia won 1-0.

“The massage has been not to underrate them. Yes, we beat them in the last game,” Chiyangi said.

“But again, when you look at that game, it was a tough match, and everyone was reminded that we make sure that when we go there, we have to take them seriously.

“This is a different game; it is not the same game we played in South Africa.”

  1. Good team, but still no exciting player to watch.
    I think last one was Mukula Mulenga, no no it was Patson Daka.

  2. Larry Bwalya is quiterrible exciting. All he needs is game time with Chipolopolo to build his confidence. With that more will follow.
