Shepolopolo Kickoff Camp For South Korea Friendlies


The Shepolopolo Zambia Womens national team have entered camp in Lusaka to prepare for the April friendly matches against South Korea to be played in Seoul.

Korea will host Zambia in two friendly matches on 7th and 11th April as both teams warm up for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Coach Bruce Mwape said a number of good players are yet to report for camp due to club commitments.

Mwape said he will be naming his final squad for the Korea trip on Sunday.
