WEEKEND SCORECARD: Shepolopolo Quartet Safe in Turkey


The Football Association of Zambia says one of the Shepolopolo Zambia players has been affected by the deadly earthquakes in Turkey and that they are safe and sound.

Turkey and neighbouring Syria were hit by two massive earthquakes on Monday in a space of hours that has left over 5,000 people dead.

FAZ has revealed that the Turkey-based Zambia quartet is safe and that none of them was based in the area along the Turkey-Syria border that was the epicentre of the two quakes.

“Goalkeeper Hazel Nali is on the books of Fatih Vatan Spor based in Istanbul, while Margaret Belemu and Misozi Zulu play for Hakkrigucu Spor in Hakkari with Prisca Chilufya based in Istanbul where she plays for Fatih Karagumruk,” FAZ spokesperson Sydney Mungala said in a statement.

“Additionally, defender Martha Tembo and midfielders Hellen Chanda and Ireen Lungu who play in Kazakhstan are also in Turkey for pre-season with WFC BIIK-Shymkent.”

Meanwhile, FAZ said it is also still awaiting official communication from the organizers on the status of next week’s 2023 Turkish Women’s Cup which is scheduled for February 13-22 in Antalya.

Following the quake, Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday declared seven days of national mourning that ends on February 12.
