2018 WCQ: Zambia To Camp Abroad For Super Eagles
The Chipolopolo are planning to camp abroad ahead of their World Cup qualifier fixture against the Super Eagles.
The game is scheduled for October 7 at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo.
Zambia coach Wesson Nyirenda said he had a discussion with the country's FA over a possible camping in Europe, since most of the players ply their trade there.
“We have been talking to the Football Association of Zambia [FAZ] and they are also interested in camping the team outside the country and if that comes, it will be a bonus to the players.”
Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) President Andrew Kamanga has said it will be a good step in the right direction.
“As you know some of the players are already in Europe, they didn’t come with us, they have already gone back and we may see it fit to camp the team abroad so that it is easier to prepare the team adequately.”
The Super Eagles top the Group B qualifiers with 10 points and are followed by Zambia who are on 7 points with two matches to go.
A win for Nigeria against Zambia in Uyo confirms the West Africans’ place at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, but a loss will see the East Africans level on points.
