Sports Feature Sports Chipolopolo Secure South Sudan and Ethiopia Friendlys

The Chipolopolo CHAN team has secured a compacted pair of friendly games each against South Sudan and Ethiopia this week.

This week’s dates against South Sudan will be Chipolopolo’s debut against Africa’s youngest nation following continental club encounters involving Zesco United and Green Buffaloes.

Chipolopolo coach Micho has named a 23-member team with three additions to the provisional CHAN team that beat Malawi 1-0 in a friendly on October 7 in Lusaka.

Chipolopolo will assemble in Lusaka on Tuesday, October 20 and depart for Addis Ababa where the four matches will be played between October 22-26.

Zambia will face Ethiopia on October 22 and play their second game against South Sudan on October 24.

Chipolopolo will face the hosts again on October 25 and wrap up its grueling program on October 26 against South Sudan.
