Zambia U23 Complete Day Two of Camp Ahead of U23 AFCON Qualifier

Share

Zambia U23 national team entered day-two of training camp ahead of next month’s 2023 U23 AFCON final round qualifier against Egypt.

Zambia will face Egypt in the first leg on March 20 and the return leg will be played on March 26 in Lusaka.

Osward Mutapa’s 30-member team on Tuesday wrapped up day two of training camp at Edwin Imboela Stadium in Lusaka.

This is Zambia’s first week of their weekly training camp in Lusaka that ends this Thursday so that players can attend to their league obligations.

“Camp is going on good we are preparing well for next month’s game and as a team, we are trying to work hard so that we bring positive results,” striker Enock Sakala Jr of Zesco United said.

“The first leg away game is very important because it is going to decide our fate for the return leg on our home ground.”

The winner over both legs will qualify for the 2023 U23 AFCON that Morocco is going to host this June.

The U23 AFCON will see the top three finishers qualify for the Paris 2024 Olympics.
