Russia based Chipolopolo striker Evans Kangwa has been ruled of the June back-to-back 2023 Africa Cup qualifiers by injury.

Kangwa of Russian side Arsenal Tula has confirmed a muscle injury has sidelined him for two months.

“Gutted to miss out on the AFCON qualifiers.On Monday I will be undergoing surgery to sort out my Adductor Muscle which has caused me significant pain since November. I will be out for 2months,” Kangwa posted on his official facebook page on Saturday evening.

“I didn’t want to talk about it now because I didn’t want to destabilize the Camp but I know the lads will give it their all and we will get good results.Go Chipolopolo Go.! Let’s fight and get back to the Afcon,” he stated.

Chipolopolo coach Aljosa Asanovic last week named Kangwa in his final 25-member squad for the AFCON qualifiers against Ivory Coast and Comoros Islands.
