Guinea Bissau v Zambia Build Up: Kalaba has a minor injury, Lubambo recovers
Veteran midfielder Rainford Kalaba is set to start on the bench for tonight’s Group K Cameroon 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifier between Zambia and Guinea Bissau.
And Armenia based winger Lubambo Musonda has passed a late fitness test following a minor knock he picked up in the 2-1 win over Guinea Bissau on Wednesday.
Kalaba, an African Cup of Nations winner was unused substitute four days ago at National Heroes Stadium but it has now emerged that the 32 year old Kitwe born had a muscle injury.
“The reason why he [Kalaba] started on the bench at Heroes Stadium is that he has been carrying an injury,” the ZamFoot Crew source said.
The ZamFoot Crew can exclusively reveal that it is the same soft tissue injury that kept Kalaba out of the TP Mazembe’ s league tie in Kinshasa a week ago.
“Yes, he made the bench but the coach didn’t want to risk him.
With Namibia stunning Mozambique with a late win in Maputo, all the four countries in Group K are on four points.
Guinea Bissau host Zambia on Sunday night at 18h00 and the game will be live on Supersport.
