Injury scare: Kola limps off during Uganda friendly match
Chipolopolo coach Wedson Nyirenda’s plans for the game against Cameroon this weekend may be derailed after Israel based striker Rgoers Kola limped off during an international friendly match against Uganda which Zambia won 1 – 0.
Kola sustained a knee injury in the game when he collided with the Cranes goalkeeper Robert Odongkara in the 60th minute.
The match had to be temporarily stopped for the playersame to be attended to, but despite trying to shake off the injury, the lanky striker had to give way for Collins Mbesuma.
With barely 4 days before the match against Cameroon, it is clear that Wada Wada was bent on having a more mobile front two and was priming Kola and Kangwa to lead the assault for Zambia in Limbe.
With Strikers Jackson Mwanza and Winstone Kalengo already dropped due to injury, the absence of Kola if he does not recover will only leave Kangwa, Mbesuma and Ronald Kampamba as the only strikers available for selection.
